Business Administration


According to a recent job forecast, the business field will be one of the four largest providers of new jobs through 2018.  Businesses are working hard to stay competitive and are looking for competent people to manage the growing workload.

The B.S. in Business Administration will provide an opportunity for students to become academically and technically prepared for a career in business, as well as government, non-profit organization, or graduate study.
