Business Administration

The Bachelor of Science in Business Administration program has an emphasis on technical and quantitative skills in addition to the science of management. This program provides an effective balance of theory and practical application with a curriculum designed to enable students to work effectively in a business environment that has become increasingly more complex.

Students will immediately use on-the-job skills they learn in the classroom, such as: critical thinking, ethical decision-making, problem solving, and the analysis and evaluation of economic, financial and statistical data. This evening program is designed for working adults and taught by working professionals with real-world experience. Students will be challenged to consider their personal and professional experiences as they explore the questions posed in quantitative and qualitative coursework. The program culminates in a capstone course, which enables students to integrate the learned skill sets with business theory. In the capstone, students develop an overall strategic organizational plan, which involves the design, formulation, and management of business policies and strategies for change.
