The Business Administration major prepares students for careers in marketing, finance, management, economics, and international business. The major provides a well-rounded core of business courses which grooms you, the student, for entry into any business-related area. In addition, you will have the opportunity to concentrate in one or more specialized areas of business. These options provide you with the versatility to accomplish your personal career goals while preparing for the diverse needs of employers. With a Business Administration major grounded in a liberal arts education, students develop the skills employers value: strong communication abilities, analytical and reasoning skills, and the knowledge to make ethical, value-based decisions. The Business Administration major is designed to ensure students are prepared for entry directly into the workforce or for acceptance into graduate school.
At Carroll College, learning occurs in a warm and caring environment with qualified and experienced faculty. In addition, you will have the opportunity to network with business professionals. For example, Carroll College has a unique relationship with D.A. Davidson & Co. that allows the investment management students to manage a $50,000 portfolio. Other program enhancements include internships and short-term study abroad opportunities.
The Department of Business, Accounting, and Economics also offers majors in Accounting and Public Administration. You may combine any of these majors or add minors from the Department of Business, Accounting, and Economics or add minors from other departments to individualize your education.
