About the Business Administration Major
We take a pioneering approach to business and take you beyond the basics.
In Carroll University’s business administration major, you’ll develop the strong skillset you’ll need to be competitive in today’s business environment. And you’ll benefit from faculty who have real-world experience to share, as well as from opportunities to meet and network with successful business leaders from across the country.
We go beyond textbooks to provide you with practical knowledge that sets you apart and prepares you for achievement. What exactly does that include? You’ll learn that leadership is more about motivating people than managing them. That the best decisions happen when teams work together toward a common goal. That statistics and strategy play well with creativity and innovation.
You’ll also gain a competitive edge by building a foundation in the liberal arts—by taking courses in fields such as English, psychology, foreign language and more. That adds value to your business degree with the skills employers are looking for—the ability to communicate effectively, think critically and creatively, consider diverse viewpoints and problem solve to positive outcomes. And you’ll have the opportunity to make a real and positive impact on the community through participation in Carroll’s local chapter of Enactus, an international nonprofit organization that believes in investing in students who take entrepreneurial action for others in order to create a better world for us all.
Our business administration major provides a broad background that gives you the flexibility you need to start your career in just about any industry, and includes courses in economics, financial accounting, managerial accounting, business law, marketing, management, finance, operations management and computational thinking.
