Business Administration

BA in Business Administration
Business Administration

Business administration courses are taught from the standpoint of concepts and principles with a focus on the interrelationship of these four key areas: finance, marketing, management, and operations. The breadth of this approach, along with opportunities to synthesize all four areas in real-world scenarios, develops the understanding and conceptual framework needed to make outstanding contributions in all types of organizations.
