Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration

General

Program Description

The business administration curriculum focuses on the understanding and application of fundamental business skills. Consistent with the Business School’s mission of programs in the Catholic Liberal Arts tradition and in recognition of the importance of the integration of the disciplines, business administration majors are strongly encouraged to double major or minor in second fields such as foreign language, communication, economics, psychology, computer science, and others. Professional internships are also an integral part of the business administration program. Internships provide students with relevant professional experience and employment opportunities upon graduation.
