So, what can you do with a business degree If you re someone who enjoys the professionalism and high-powered nature of big business, then you re likely to be considering a business degree as a stepping stone to a high-status, high-salary career. In today's world, corporate business careers are available in pretty much every sector you can think of; all industries need strong leaders, managers, financial advisors and market-savvy decision-makers. For many business graduates, however, the traditional pathways still hold a strong appeal including careers in the banking and financial sectors, consultancy, human resources and marketing roles.
If a straightforward corporate career is failing to get you excited, then a business program can also give you the skills to create your own business, or to take on business and management roles within more creative industries, be that fashion, media, or even the charity sector.

Programme Structure Students begin the business program with two years of general education, including course work in the liberal arts, quantitative methods and technology, economics and the behavioral sciences. With this broad academic foundation in place, students are then exposed to the functional areas of business management, marketing, finance and accounting. The program design builds an understanding of the interrelationship among these functional areas of business, as well as sensitivity to the economic, social, technological, legal and international environment in which businesses must operate. The objective of the program is not simply to impart basic business knowledge, but to instill and nurture important qualities and skills in students that are essential for future business leadership and organizational success. These attributes include analytical and problem solving skills, communicative capacity, interpersonal and teamwork skills, an understanding of quantitative methods and information technology, and a sense of community and civic responsibility. The Practicum Business administration majors are encouraged to complete a three-credit practicum. The practicum is designed to enable our students to relate business concepts learned in the classroom to actual business situations and to give them a competitive edge in job placement.
