Business Administration


About the Program

In our business program, you won’t simply memorize jargon and facts; you will develop strong analytical and group project skills by working with case studies representing situations you may face on the job. This process ultimately prepares you to adapt to the rapidly changing business environment.


Business Administration majors must select a concentration.

  • Finance

    Learn how to analyze the structure, functioning and regulation of domestic and global financial institutions; analyze interest rate behavior and monetary policy; and impact financial markets and major types of financial instruments.

  • General Business

    Take classes in all areas of business to become a well-rounded professional. This provides you with the flexibility to take classes that align with your specific career interests.

  • Management

    Good managers communicate and collaborate effectively to establish ethical principles in the business environment with people of diverse ethnic, cultural, gender and other backgrounds. They integrate management of people, processes and resources maximizing goal achievement in the global environment.

  • Marketing

    The marketing concentration teaches you how to evaluate current marketing concepts and apply the appropriate marketing mix to develop a sound marketing plan addressing various vertical markets such as retail, financial services and technology.

  • Bachelor's Accelerated Masters Program

    Current undergraduate students can apply for the “Bachelor’s Accelerated Master’s” (BAM) program, where students can enroll in graduate level courses while they are still completing their bachelor’s degree and put that credit toward a Master of Business Administration (MBA) through The University of Olivet.


  • Operations Manager

    A business operations manager is responsible for all of the ins and outs of how an organization runs. They look for efficient solutions, create organization within a company, and oversee how everything works together.

  • Sales Representative

    Sales representatives are the principal point of contact between a business and its customers. Sales reps ensure current customers have the right products and services, identify new markets and customer leads, and pitch prospective customers.

  • Human Resource Director

    The human resource director will plan and develop the policies, activities, and staff of the HR department to ensure legal compliance and implementation of the organizations mission.

  • Manager

    Managers are tasked with maintaining organization and efficiency inside a company. They often hire and train new employees, plan schedules, and give reports and presentations to higher executives to show how a company is performing.
