Business Administration

A business degree can be the starting point of a career in many fields. Few organizations can operate successfully without trained administrators. Today’s business leaders must be effective decision makers with business skills and insight.

The Bachelor of Science in Business Administration program provides students with a strong foundation of business practices and how to apply them to real-world circumstances.  Students complete introductory courses in accounting and economics, social responsibility and the legal environment in business.  The program focuses on providing students with the skills of analysis of business problems and opportunities, key business functions as well as analysis and implementation of business practices.

The Business Division’s Business Leadership Advisory Board is comprised of corporate leaders from Fortune 500 companies, as well as principals from across the United States. These leaders provide valuable information concerning course content, internships, job opportunities and current business issues critical to the success of our students.
