Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) Graduate
The Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree provides students with a solid grounding in the core knowledge and competencies required in today’s diverse, global, and technologically sophisticated business environment.
B.S. in Business Administration students gain a working knowledge of the principles and concepts of management theory and practice by examining the interrelationships among the major business disciplines. Through case studies and demonstrations, students evaluate practical applications of the manager’s role in planning, organizing, staffing, directing, and controlling.
This program is results-oriented and extends beyond theories and conceptual understanding to practical application. Once students have a solid foundation in business administration, they select a concentration from today’s most important fields. This flexibility helps to ensure that students learn professionally relevant skills that can be directly applied to the working world.
At the end of this program, students will be able to:
- Demonstrate proficiency in the fundamental business principles and practices that enable firms to operate in both domestic and global environments.
- Employ critical-thinking and analysis skills to solve business problems in a real-world context.
