Why Business Administration?

All businesses need core people with a variety of skills including accounting, marketing, computer applications, finance, economics, human resources, and management strategies. While most people can’t be experts in all these areas, a general background gives you a solid foundation on which to build. You can then apply your general skills and education in any industry that interests you and develop specific skills further while on the job.
