Business Administration - Adult/Evening

Our online program gives students a comprehensive understanding of how the parts of a company work together to fulfill the company’s mission. While providing a range of courses selected to give students an extensive understanding of the inner workings of businesses, our program also provides an unusually strong grounding in communication skills that are much desired by employers and may provide a competitive advantage to our graduates. In addition to learning about business principles (business fundamentals, business ethics, business law, organization and management, and professional and intercultural communication), students will get a foundation in economics, accounting, finance, marketing, and human resources.

Franciscan Values

Our four Franciscan values of creating a caring community, reverencing all of creation, making peace, and showing compassion are a fundamental part to who we are and to everything we do.

We capture how we share our values through a saying from Saint Francis, “Preach the Gospel at all times. When necessary, use words.” This captures quite well how we share our Franciscan values.
