Business Administration

Doing business in a global environment takes more than technical know-how. It requires a sophisticated worldview and a razor-sharp ability to analyze processes, negotiate relationships and temper instinct with intellect.

Skills like those don’t come easy. You can’t just study business; you have to become a quick study in business.

St. Norbert’s internationally focused liberal arts environment helps you do just that as you earn your Bachelor of Business Administration degree in one of three majors:
  • General Business Administration
  • Accounting
  • International Business and Language Area Studies (IBLAS)
As 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
You may also broaden your career prospects by pairing a seven-course business administration minor with the major of your choice.

A Business Administration Degree at Work
Business courses demand attention to deadlines, group work and careful case studies. These experiences build the cooperative spirit and critical-thinking skills that drive success in any business setting.

Employers know they benefit most when business acumen comes paired with strong ethics and civic-mindedness. As a business administration major, you learn to make decisions that balance the bottom line and the greater good.

Career paths you might follow with a business administration degree include:
  • General management
  • Operations
  • Quality control
  • Sales
  • Marketing
  • Customer relations
  • Purchasing
  • Market research
  • Banking
  • Personal financial planning

Accelerate Your Business Administration Degree
The business internship program lets you earn college credits while you gain business experience in a real-world work setting.

You can also amplify your business education through involvement in organizations like ENACTUS and Discoveries International Inc. Participation in the latter organization paired with academic excellence can earn you a scholarship in your junior and senior year.

When you study abroad as a business administration major, you expand your international business savvy – and in turn expand your job prospects.

Alumnus Highlight

“I can’t say enough about the quality of the education I received from the business program at St Norbert College. I’m still amazed at the amount of time each professor had to spend with each of us. Having access to top-notch faculty is a value that I don’t think many incoming students have much perspective on. Those experts are guides throughout your four years on campus – and they even provide support well after your graduation. St Norbert’s class size allows you to build and maintain strong relationships that will benefit you for years to come.”
