Are you the type of person who enjoys working with others and helping a group accomplish a common goal? Could you see yourself in just about any role within an organization? Do you have a passion, that paired with a business degree, would empower you to fulfill your dreams? If so, a degree in business administration could be the right path for you. PLNU business administration majors are leaders of purpose and integrity who consistently take the initiative to guide people and businesses toward success.
A Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration prepares you to handle the organizational, operational, and managerial responsibilities of any company or industry. With a program dedicated to helping you become a well-rounded leader and individual, you will engage in classes ranging from accounting and finance to economics, management, marketing, and everything in between!
Business administration is also the perfect complement if you have passions and career aspirations that lie outside of business. Having a foundational knowledge of business is useful and applicable whether your dreams lie in music, ministry, art, sciences, or anywhere else. The flexibility of the business administration program is designed for you to add a dual major or minor outside of business and create a powerful combination of skills and specialization that will make you stand out in your field of choice.
"In addition to academics, the life skills I gained while at PLNU have been incredibly beneficial to my work. Learning how to research well, knowing what to look for and where to look, being able to adapt when I’m put in situations I’m not familiar or comfortable with, and being taught that business is about more than the bottom line — these aspects are what I value most from my undergraduate experience and are what have helped me stand out in the business world."
