Madam C.J. Walker Stamp

The minor in administrative science is devoted to the study of organizations. In today's climate of intense competition and social activism, it is important to approach organizational problems wisely, with ethical responsibility, historical perspective, and imagination. The requirements for the minor include introductory courses in microeconomics, macroeconomics, general management, financial accounting, and managerial finance. In addition students must complete two electives from a list of courses in government, economics, mathematics, sociology, and administrative science.

Administrative science is a broadly based minor designed for students who want to gain insight into the management of business and other organizations, but who do not want to forego the advantages of a true liberal arts education. As a liberal arts college, Colby emphasizes the development of analytical and creative thinking, as well as communication skills. The program is designed to help prepare students for positions of leadership where the abilities to analyze, organize, and communicate are essential.
