Our program builds on St. Norbert’s liberal arts tradition, bringing intellectual rigor to the development of your managerial skills.
Doing business in a global environment takes more than technical know-how. It requires a sophisticated worldview and a razor-sharp ability to analyze processes, negotiate relationships and temper instinct with intellect.
Skills like those don’t come easy. You can’t just study business; you have to become a quick study in business.
St. Norbert’s internationally-focused liberal arts environment helps you do just that as you earn your Bachelor of Business Administration degree in one of three majors:
- General business administration
- International Business and Language Area Studies (IBLAS)
As a general business administration major, you have the option to focus your studies with one of five concentrations:
- General management
- Human resource management
- Global business
You may also broaden your career prospects by pairing a seven-course business administration minor with the major of your choice. Students who are interested in business administration may also be interested in our economics program of study.
