Business Administration

The Business Administration major is intended to prepare business leaders who are effective general managers with expertise in managerial communications, finance, management and marketing. An advantage of Business Administration is that it is not industry-specific. Students are equipped to be leaders in Finance, Marketing, Communications, Human Resources, and more. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) forecasts 151,100 new general and operations managers from 2014 to 2024, with job opportunities varying depending on the particular industry. Students majoring in Business Administration are encouraged to consider applying to a 4+1 Program.

The Business Administration major is available to students at the Waterbury Campus.

Business Administration majors must take five three-credit 3000 or 4000-level School of Business courses in the following subjects: ACCT, BADM, BUSN, BLAW, FNCE, HCMI, MGMT, MKTG, and OPIM. Students should seek advice from the advisors about the options offered at their campus. Students can use these courses to dive more deeply in a business to promote specific career goals.

Student Voices



Anna-Lena Wakefield (Business Administration '19)


“Business Administration equips me with the skills and knowledge needed to be a leader in finance, marketing, management, human resources, and many other related industries. The major is not industry-specific, and I love how I've gained knowledge in so many areas instead of gaining a whole lot of knowledge in just one.”
