Business Administration Degree
The Business Administration major is an interdepartmental program designed to provide maximum course flexibility and a broad-based preparation for future opportunities. At the heart of the major is a business core that includes an extensive background in the functional areas of marketing, finance, accounting, and management.
Beyond coverage of the basic business principles, the business administration program provides you with the opportunity to explore a variety of elective course offerings. Whether you are preparing for graduate study, looking for ways to increase your marketability, or just wanting to explore new hobbies, the business administration program can be tailored to your individual needs for maximum results.
What to Expect
Freshman Year Through most of your freshman and sophomore years as a business administration major you’ll take courses drawn primarily from the university core curriculum. These courses promote the development of key skills and prepare you for the major course work.
Sophomore Year Even as a freshman or sophomore, it’s never too early to visit the AT&T Career Resource Center in the Office of Professional and Career Development or to schedule a one-on-one appointment with a career coach. You should also review the schedule of professional development programs and seminars for topics of interest.
Junior Year During the first semester of your junior year, you will satisfy the majority of your business core requirements. It is at the start of your second semester that you will gain greater control of your academic future. This is when you begin your elective coursework. In addition to discipline- specific electives, you will have the opportunity to explore new areas of interest through a number of free elective options.
Senior Year In your senior year you’ll complete your course work, begin the job interview process, and possibly consider graduate school. If you haven’t maintained relationships with past employers, professors and mentors over the past few years, be sure to reconnect and network. Consider a wide variety of opportunities, stay committed to your goals and above all, remain patient. Everything tends to fall into place as it should.
