Business Administration

Business is a major worth choosing if you are interested in acquiring the theoretical knowledge and practical skills required to play a leadership role in the corporate world. Business leaders are critical as part of small local firms, as well as within global and multinational organizations. They create and implement management strategy, manage human resources, analyze and make decisions that impact the social and economic environment within public and private organizations, shape organizational policy, and help ensure that organizational goals are being met.

Program Description

Flagler’s business administration program encompasses courses in economics, business law, accounting, statistics, communication, marketing, management, finance, and computer applications. In addition to classroom learning, business majors at Flagler also benefit from unique hands-on learning and professional networking opportunities. They win national and international awards as part of student organizations such as the Society for Advancement of Management (SAM) and Enactus. They make professional connections through internships with local, national, and global organizations. They collaborate closely with faculty who have years of real-world industry experience. And, not surprisingly, most of them receive one or more job offers even before they graduate.  A number of graduates continue their education and earn advanced degrees in business and related subjects.
