The business administration major, the central program of Lakeland's Business Administration Division, produces graduates with this wide range of skills and expertise. Its core set of classes introduces students to the major fields within business and economics, while requiring students to "focus" on a particular area of business through their choice of an emphasis.
Students thus graduate with essential competencies in business administration, as well as focused understanding of one key area.
Students who major in Business Administration will be able to:
- utilize the central principles of business and business administration, ranging from key theories and issues to specialized rules and operations;
- understand the structures and institutions of the American and world economic systems, specifically as they relate to the business world;
- comprehend the various ways in which people use their resources to achieve personal, business, and social objectives;
- communicate business and economic information to stakeholders in a clear and professional manner; and
- appreciate and abide by the ethical and legal rules by which business entities relate to one another and to society.
