Business administration

Become a leader in the business world

As one of five programs within the Schneider School of Business & Economics, business administration develops and empowers ethical business leaders. You’ll become adept at essential skills for doing business in an increasingly interconnected world, including analytical thinking, negotiation, communication and management.

Our program provides top-notch teaching from business faculty as well as thoughtful mentoring. St. Norbert’s strong ties to the region’s economic leaders also give you many ways to engage with local and global business networks. Combine that with hands-on learning and the opportunity for meaningful internship experience, and you’ll have a sturdy foundation for future success.

Earn your Bachelor of Business Administration degree in one of three majors:
  • General business administration
  • Accounting
  • International business and language area studies (IBLAS)
If you’re a general business administration major, you have the option to focus your studies with one of five concentrations:
  • General management
  • Marketing
  • Finance
  • Human resource management
  • Global business
Already decided on a non-business major at SNC? You can still broaden your career prospects by pairing a seven-course business administration minor with your chosen major. SNC now offers a sports management minor as well. 

Enrich your business administration degree

Opportunities abound at St. Norbert College for business administration students. Pursue college internships with Fortune 500 companies or participate in other real-world learning. Seek out service-learning engagements where you’ll help meet the needs of communities near and far. Get involved in student organizations — or create your own — to develop your leadership potential and hone your management skills. All these things will not only build your knowledge and confidence, but will strengthen your resume and boost your employability, too.

Our students working toward business administration degrees have interned at:
  • Associated Bank
  • Cintas
  • Green Bay Packers
  • Merrill Lynch
  • Schreiber Foods
  • US Bank
  • Unilever

Since the Business Administration degree program is part of the Schneider School of Business & Economics, you’ll also have access to many of the same faculty and resources as our MBA students. Additionally, you might be interested in The Center for Business & Economic Analysis, where business students collaborate with college faculty to provide research-based solutions for community partners. Or perhaps you’ll consider a minor in leadership studies to further focus your undergraduate degree.

Whatever path you embark on, we’ll be here to support you.

  • I was part of the Turning Responsibility Into Powerful Service (TRIPS) program on campus, and that’s actually what got me my internship. One winter we went on a children’s medical trip to a hospital in Memphis, Tenn. It was a life-changing experience. I highly recommend taking an alternative break with TRIPS; it’s so fulfilling.
