The Business Administration program is a broad-based program enabling students to understand how organizations operate in the contemporary global environment. Business Administration students acquire an understanding of the external environment of business and how it affects the internal activities of an enterprise. Drawing on management theory as well as current business practices, students develop knowledge, skills and competencies that will enable them to assume positions in a wide variety of industries and organizations. The Business Administration curriculum places special emphasis on personal ethical accountability and corporate social responsibility.
In addition to coursework in business disciplines such as accounting, economics, finance, law, marketing, management information systems and operations management, students complete management courses that explore how resources – whether human, information, technology, knowledge or materials – all strategically combine to achieve the goals of an organization. Communication, teamwork and leadership skills needed in managerial roles are emphasized across the curriculum.
All Business Administration students are encouraged to complete an internship. Sacred Heart University also offers the MBA degree (Master of Business Administration). Qualified students can complete both the BS and MBA degrees in a special five-year program. In addition, a minor is also available.
The courses in the Business Administration program are offered by knowledgeable and experienced professors who are active not only in the classroom but also through research, policy advising and consulting. Faculty members collaborate with both domestic and international academic institutions and professional organizations, serve on boards of directors, and provide consulting and training to numerous types of organizations.
