Business Administration


The B.A. in Business Administration degree combines general business study with two years of language study. Business Administration majors are well equipped to begin management training careers. For students wanting to enter graduate school, a B.S. in Business Administration that is slightly more quantitative requiring courses in statistics is also offered.

Students wishing for a broad background in business are well prepared to enter general business employment and/or management employment after completing the Business Administration degree. Students complete courses in management, accounting, economics, research methods, marketing, finance, and technology. The Business Administration degree may be combined with degrees in Accounting, Marketing, Finance, International Business, Sport Management, and Management of Information Systems or may be taken along with a minor from another department at Grace College.
