The business administration major provides students with an understanding of complex business environments, administrative practices and processes, and the structure and role of organizations. It introduces students to the concepts and theories of management and decision-making while providing experience-based opportunities in which to apply these concepts.
Students may focus their studies and select an emphasis in one of two areas: management or finance. As students advance, they will have the opportunity to apply their knowledge in a business simulation project and later in an internship or thesis project. Students will also have the opportunity to apply their learned skills to the management of a real fund, through an endowment-funded investment portfolio.
The business administration major offers graduates the flexibility to choose between entry-level managerial positions and advanced study. It is particularly appropriate for individuals seeking advanced study in business, law, planning, and healthcare management.
