Bachelor of Science in Business Administration
The dynamic, global economy is changing at an ever-quickening pace. Professionals must be competent in the technical areas of business and must understand the “soft skills” needed to manage projects, people and organizations.
Careers in Business Administration
Those who complete a bachelor’s degree in business administration will understand how a firm operates successfully in the business environment. Students gain analytical and technical skills needed to compete in today’s challenging marketplace. Graduates can become senior-level managers and leaders across a wide range of businesses including retail, manufacturing, import/export and trade, consumer products, technology and consulting.
All undergraduate students in the Naveen Jindal School of Management must complete an internship and 100 hours of community service in order to graduate. The Jindal School’s fully staffed Career Management Center (CMC), working in tandem with the University’s Career Center, helps students prepare for and seek internships, as well as post-graduation employment. The school’s Undergraduate Programs office directs and coordinates the community service requirement.
