Student Testimonials

"I chose Business Administration because I think that it would be very beneficial to learn about each functional area of business, especially since I hope to own and operate my own business one day. Getting a B.S.B.A., followed up with an M.B.A. should make for a well-rounded entrepreneur."
~ Lisa B.

"Business Administration allows me the ability to get my toes wet in all aspects of business. From accounting to management to the legal environment, I believe the major will provide me with the education I need to be successful in whatever my future may bring. B.S.B.A. provides me a macro based outlook on business rather than only covering a small segment. Why be a single department supervisor when you be can manage the whole store? B.S.B.A. all the way!"
~ Andrew K.
