Designed by business professionals for students seeking to prepare themselves for an ever-changing business world.

This degree program prepares graduates to gain knowledge of business administration principles behind the functioning of a company or organization while developing a clear perception of business ethics based on Christian principles. In the daytime, residential program, this degree is offered with concentrations in accounting, entrepreneurship, and management.

Faculty professionals from many industries bring their academic and organizational experiences to the classroom through a challenging, engaging, relevant and faith-based curriculum. You will learn about finding your passion and purpose to become a responsible servant-leader in your organization and your community.

As a Business Administration major, you will learn how to apply theoretical concepts to actual business situations, use technology in decision-making, develop Christian servant-leadership principles, solve problems using collaborative techniques, and celebrate diversity in business environments.Business Administration majors will become comfortable with analysis of financial information behind the operation of a business or organization. You will become knowledgeable in the areas of accounting, business law, economics, finance, management, marketing, statistics and strategy.

Students also have the opportunity to participate in career-building activities outside of the classroom that allow them to put into practice much of what they learn through programs such as Enactus (entrepreneurial development) and VITA (tax preparation).

You might consider a Business Administration major if you seek a position in management or accounting for a business or organization and desire advancement within a company or organization with additional responsibilities and higher pay. This major is also helpful to those who wish to develop entrepreneurial skills necessary to start and operate their own business.

Your Future

"The low student-faculty ratio fosters an ideal learning environment that allows students to connect better with both professors and classmates. Learning to work cooperatively with other classmates equipped me with group skills that are essential in life and business."

Kyle Blackwell
Business administration graduate
"At SWU, you learn life skills and life lessons. For me, it fostered intangibles like communication, responsiveness, integrity, trust and confidence. I would not have had the confidence to take on an Ivy League graduate school or the world's business and financial hub in Manhattan if not for the confidence developed and nurtured at SWU."
