The Business Administration major is intended to prepare business leaders who are effective general managers with expertise in managerial communications, finance, management and marketing. The great 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.
Upon graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, students are well prepared for professions requiring general management competencies and knowledge. "Graduates earning business administration/management degrees saw a 4.7 percent increase to their average salary offer…. These graduates are also consistently high in demand,” according to responding National Association of Colleges & Employers (NACE) Job Outlook employers. Business administration/management is also ranked top 5 in demand according to this research.
UConn Business Administration majors can expect starting salaries up to $72,000.
The core curriculum of the Business Administration major requires a three credit business writing and oral presentations course called BADM 4075W (Business Communications) and BUSN 3005 (Career Development in Business). The Extended Core Requirements of the Business Administration major consist of advanced three credit courses in Finance, Marketing, and Management. Students select one course in each of these disciplines offered at their campus to complete their Extended Core Requirement.
Three advisor-approved Business electives are required for the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. The general business electives may be taken in any business discipline subject to approval by the student's advisor. Students may generalize by taking their required business electives in different disciplines or may choose to focus by concentrating the required business electives to promote specific career goals.
