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 major 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 program, with its balance of practical and theoretical course work, may be a great fit for you.
