Business Administration

The journey toward becoming an entrepreneur starts in a business classroom — learning the rules and applying them to your passions.

Preparing you for the real world 

Business Administration is Monmouth’s most popular major. Our curriculum focuses on the real world of global commerce rather than the theoretical world of textbook models. We focus on broad-based, long-run phenomena, preparing our students to be flexible and ready for any professional opportunity. 

We enable students to see how the pieces fit together

But also to appreciate how those pieces were shaped by unique historical circumstances, and to imagine how those pieces might be reassembled to make a different picture tomorrow. Our graduates are prepared for a variety of roles in industry, government and nongovernmental organizations by learning to ethically manage operations, financial and physical assets, and personnel in the workplace.

Concentrate in finance, management or marketing

Through a selection of electives, the business administration major offers concentrations in finance, management or marketing. Regardless of concentration, all business administration students take a broad array of courses in economics, accounting, management, marketing, finance and law, so they graduate with a breadth of business knowledge rather than narrow training in just one area.
