What will I learn?

In our fast-paced and technologically complex business world, the need for effective managers is critical. Today’s business professionals must be doers, decision-makers and motivators of people. Business Administration graduates bring a broad base of knowledge to the workplace in a variety of specialized areas including marketing, management services, and accounting. While successfully handling specific business functions, they have the background to strengthen their skills, broaden their knowledge and prove their competence in anticipation of moving into middle management positions to the benefit of both profitability and corporate success.


Business Administration graduates are generalists with specialized skills in marketing, accounting, and human resources management. Graduates are effective communicators and team players who are trained in problem-solving and in the use of computer software to assess and manage data and information.
