Business Administration Advising

  Back to programs

Think of a business as a machine. Good performance relies on a complex array of pieces seamlessly working together — much like a company’s success relies on well-managed business operations. The W. P. Carey degree in business administration prepares you to effectively manage people, finances, and risk for organizations of all sizes. You’ll graduate with versatile skills and knowledge, a competitive edge in the job market, and the tools you need to create value throughout your career.
