What will I learn?

A business degree is a valuable commodity in all manner of business environments–public or private, for-profit or non-profit, large or small.

Building on business foundations in accounting, marketing, finance, economics, human resources, information systems, management and organizational behavior, the business administration degree curriculum is enriched through practical applications, a global perspective, faculty mentors and collaborative teams.

Whether you want to be a corporate manager, project lead or an innovative entrepreneur, you can get there with a business administration degree from Florida Tech. Here, you'll develop a strong background in business and get hands-on experience in modern management strategies and best practices.

All accounting classes are approved by the Florida State Board of Accountancy for credit toward the requirements to take the CPA exam.

Gain Practical Experience

Business students can explore business startup as their Major Field Practicum experience in Florida Tech's Student Business Incubator; a living, breathing center for new venture creation.

The incubator combines curriculum, facilities and expertise to fully immerse students in a semester-long Lean LaunchPad program. As a senior, you'll complete the practicum in business, a professional internship course in which you apply your business skills and savvy within a dynamic local company. As a result, you get practical experience, an expanded professional network and perhaps even a pre-graduation job offer.
