The Business Administration Major

The business administration major is an experiential program that provides students with an understanding of complex business environment, 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 in one of two concentrations: 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, not just a theoretical transaction, through the endowment-funded investment portfolio.

The business administration major offers graduates the flexibility to choose between entry-level managerial positions and advanced study.
