Producing ethical, inspired business leaders.
To succeed in today’s globally competitive, digitally connected business environment, it takes more than just depth of knowledge. It takes focus and perspective. It takes creativity and hands-on experience. It takes a breadth of training. These are just a few of the things that characterize Marian’s business administration program.
The focus of Marian’s business administration program is to develop leaders who are prepared, from day one, to provide a positive impact in small- or medium-sized businesses. That’s why, as a student in the program, you’ll explore and develop essential knowledge and skills in all aspects of 21st century business—from marketing and human resources to production and finance and all points in between. And you’ll develop “the five C’s,” skills most valued by employers everywhere—creativity, critical thinking, communication, cultural awareness and computer knowledge.
As a student in the business administration program, you’ll be able to couple our liberal arts core curriculum with broad-based learning experiences in the field. You’ll develop real-world knowledge and skills through internships and cooperative work experiences with local businesses and agencies, helping them to develop things like marketing plans. And you’ll enjoy leadership opportunities offered by participation in the Marian Business Club or Sport and Recreation Management Club.
One of the most impressive aspects of the business administration program is the broad spectrum of professional opportunities it presents. As a graduate of the program, you’ll be positioned to enter the professional world in any number of business settings—marketing, advertising, finance, accounting, management and more. And the program’s accreditation by the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education will provide a powerful statement to employers and graduate schools about the quality of your Marian degree.
