Business administration is a wide field that incorporates many types of operational and management positions. Paul College offers undergraduate and graduate programs that will help you build the skills, knowledge and experience to land a job and thrive in today’s evolving economy. By the time you graduate, you will have developed an impressive portfolio of marketable skills—as generalists who want broad exposure to management, or as new entrepreneurs, marketers, systems analysts, financial planners or accountants.

At Paul College, students in the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration major take foundation courses in their freshman and sophomore years that cover the fundamental theories, principles, concepts and skill sets in key areas of business, while building upon their social, analytical, competitive and professional intelligence. These foundation courses prepare you to move into a variety of fields and companies.

Many students choose more than one! Options within the major include: accounting, entrepreneurial studies, finance, information systems and business analytics, international business and economics, management, marketing, and student designed.
