Business Administration

The Business Administration program teaches students about leadership, organizational structure, problem solving, and risk-taking in the ever-changing world of business.

What You'll Study

The Business Administration major is for students seeking broad exposure to the business theory and practices necessary to be an effective decision-maker in an increasingly competitive and global market. 

It includes a business core of 45 credit hours that provides a foundational understanding of the principles and applications of Accounting, Economics, Finance, Information Systems, Management, Marketing, and Business Law.  Beyond this core, the Business Administration major includes 18 credit hours of management-focused coursework designed to provide the student with a thorough understanding of management theory and application, including an ability to think critically in identifying and managing available business opportunities and related risks. 

For details on the program and specific courses, you may visit the course catalog.

Practical Experience

Students participate in hands-on learning and professional networking both in and outside of the classroom. In addition, the major requires the completion of a three-hour hands-on business internship. Our campus also provides events to connect organizations and our students, leading to internships, network connections, and even on-the-spot job offers.

Our graduates will be ready to create and implement management strategies; manage human, financial, and capital resources; and make decisions that shape organizational policy within the public and private organizations.

Graduates with a major in business administration are well-prepared for entry-level positions in management that require analytical skills applied in an ethically conscious and sustainable manner and graduate programs in business and business-related disciplines.
