Why Business Administration?


A major in general business prepares students for the world of business, which increasingly demands that business graduates have cross-functional abilities. The business administration major builds abilities across multiple business disciplines, including management, marketing and finance, thus providing broad skills and education in the context of managing modern businesses.

Graduates of these programs gain skills in the management of resources, adoption of market orientation and understanding of financial and/or economic implications of management decisions. The degree program covers a broad field of business fundamentals and will give graduates the tools necessary to land an entry level business position or to pursue further education with a business bachelor’s degree and even an MBA.
