This degree program is designed for adult professionals who wish to advance and solidify their careers in business. Built on the strong liberal arts foundation provided by Mount St. Mary's general education requirements, the core of the business administration major is generalist in scope and covers the key functional areas in business--management, information systems, organizational behavior, business law, accounting, marketing and finance.
In addition to this common core, students can select a Concentration in one of three business specialties: Marketing, International Business, or Management. Or they can make their own choices from the variety of upper division business electives that are offered and design a customized specialization in an area of contemporary focus and personal interest.
The program is structured to incorporate workplace experience into the fabric of the classroom. All the courses emphasize group discussion, group projects, and oral and written communication exercises.
This joint major combines the liberal arts emphasis of the English major with the professional preparation of the business administration major.
