Business Administration Major

In today's competitive, global business environment, managers must have a variety of skills – coupled with knowledge and experience – in order to manage and lead successfully. Managers are no longer insulated within functional areas of business. Many responsible positions require a solid background in business fundamentals, as well as an appreciation of the interrelated nature of business functions. 

The Business Administration [BADM] major provides students the opportunity to develop skills in their business-related areas of interest and increase their understanding of the broader business environment. Students create an individualized, but integrated set of courses – from the approved list of business electives and no more than one course outside the School of Management. All Business Administration majors must complete at least one approved international-designated course. The curriculum allows students to develop their communication, analytical and computer skills, creativity, and other qualities necessary for success in organizational life. Ultimately, this major provides a more comprehensive, but tailored education opening up a variety of career paths for students.


Students take 20 credits of upper division, non-core business coursework. With approval from a faculty advisor, 4 of the 20 credits may be from business related coursework in other colleges within the University.
