Percival Hall is home to the Business Administration Department. In addition to the department faculty offices, there are several state of the art classrooms and two large case study rooms with technology that enables students to be engaged in working on problem solving and team building skills.

Often course work involves real local business scenarios, for example, creating advertising campaigns, market research, project management, and case competitions. 

Such unique facilities give our students the opportunity to work with a variety of businesses on projects that are not simply academic exercises, but are real-world projects.

Students involved with these projects learn how to analyze data, work cooperatively and implement changes that affect the local economy.
