Business Administration

Business Administration
Tom Kates

 

Business Administration is the art and science of managing a company or organization. It's about understanding how businesses work, from the nitty-gritty details of day-to-day operations to the big-picture strategies that drive growth and profitability.

At Paul College, we have business administration programs for both undergrads and grads that'll help you get ready for the working world.

If you're pursuing an undergraduate degree in Business Administration, you'll spend your first two years engaging in foundational coursework covering essential theories, principles, and skill sets across various business topics. These courses not only impart vital knowledge but also foster social, analytical, competitive, and professional aptitudes.

Upon entering your sophomore year, you'll be asked to specialize by selecting an "option" within this major. Your option provides focused expertise in a specific area of business: accounting, entrepreneurial studies, finance, hospitality management, information systems and business analytics, international business and economics, management, marketing, supply chain management and student designed.  Many students choose more than one!

When you graduate you'll possess a robust portfolio of marketable skills, whether you aspire to assume leadership roles, embark on entrepreneurial ventures, pursue roles in finance, marketing, or other facets of the business landscape. Our aim is to empower you for success in your chosen career path.
