Bachelor of Science in Business Administration


Program Description

The Business Administration curriculum is designed to provide the student with the practical, as well as the theoretical knowledge and learning experiences required to be successful in a business environment. The goal of the program is to give students the ability to recognize and capitalize on business opportunities by harnessing the business and economic resources available to them. Medaille College’s generalist approach imparts working expertise in all the functional areas of business, enabling the student to better understand the management of a business.

As part of the major requirements, each student takes courses in accounting, management, marketing, finance, and law. The management information systems component seeks to provide a basic familiarity of computers for Business students. The field experience requirement gives students the opportunity for “hands-on” experience applying what has been learned in the classroom to real business situations. Credit hours for work/life experience can also be earned by students who have had appropriate previous experience in related areas.

The liberal arts and sciences portion of the degree seeks to provide a solid foundation in the humanities and social sciences as well as a background in mathematics and science. All Business majors should complete 100-level business courses, ENG 110/ENG 112, ENG 200/ENG 202, SPE 130, ECO 200, and ECO 201 during their first two years at Medaille College.

Business majors are expected to attend all classes. Students are responsible for all material covered and for any announcements made in any class session whether the student is present or not. Majors in this program may not take any business course Pass/Fail. A 2.0 cumulative grade point average (GPA) is required of all Business majors in their core and elective business courses to graduate.

The Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration is accredited by the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE).
