About This Program

The Business Administration program provides students with a foundation in general business practices, leadership concepts and microcomputer applications. In addition to acquiring skills in accounting, finance, sales and operations, students enhance their ability to write, think, work in groups, solve problems and build confidence and the ability to succeed in the world of business.
