The Business Administration major is designed to provide an understanding of the core functional areas of a company, while also allowing for focused concentration in a particular area of interest. Through rigorous case study and practical application, students study the challenges and opportunities facing existing companies as well as new ventures. Students learn how a business can achieve its objectives in a competitive environment while maintaining a culture of sound and ethical principles and practices. They learn to analyze and evaluate business systems in terms of their efficiency, effectiveness, productivity, and profitability, and they learn to make convincing presentations to all levels of business management. Students gain an appreciation of how responsible business practices can improve economic standards, social stability, and international trade. Business Administration graduates leave with developed integrative critical-thinking skills and a proven ability to execute informed decision making processes. Graduates are prepared for a range of career opportunities in both for-profit and nonprofit private entities as well as in the public sector.
