What Is Business Administration?

Business administration is the study of how business operations are managed and supervised. It’s a popular undergraduate major because it provides a broad background of business skills you can apply to many different careers. As a business administration major, you’ll study areas such as accounting, economics, finance and how to use common information technologies in business.

Business administration vs. business management

Both business management and administration explore how businesses work and cover the same core subjects. However, a business administration degree provides a broader background and allows you to focus your studies in a specialized area of business. A degree in business management tends to focus more on planning and organizing.

The most beneficial part of my College of Business and Security Management experience was being involved in the student organizations and networking events. I had hands on experiences that could not have been taught in the classroom. I learned networking, leadership and public speaking. The College of Business and Security Management taught me how to get out of my comfort zone and push myself to the next level. I learned the power of conversation and networking, while making a number of important business connections along the way.
