About Business Administration

Businesses need people who understand marketing, accounting and management. A broad background in those areas is part of the training and experience you’ll receive through your Business Administration degree at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College. One of the interesting things about Business Administration professionals is that they tend to be attentive to detail, but also have a great ability to analyze the bigger picture of a project or venture.

Perhaps that’s why business administration jobs are growing at a higher-than-average rate, according to federal labor reports. If you like the thought of being hands-on and knowledgeable about many areas of business, our business administration program, with its balance of practical and theoretical course work, is a great fit for you.
