Business Administration - General


Program Information

The three-year Business Administration program prepares you for a world of business and educational opportunities. Whether you want to become an entrepreneur, operate a small family-owned business, join a multi-national organization, a not-for-profit service organization or continue your education at university, the Business Administration program is the first step.

During the first year, students will be in an active learning environment and are exposed to a curriculum that builds a solid knowledge base of the major areas of business. This lays a foundation for the areas of concentration and for the development of teamwork, leadership, and research skills. All students in the Business Administration program will take two entrepreneurship project courses where they can research and plan their own business or work on special projects for existing businesses.
