Business Administration

Arm yourself with the necessary skills in human resources management, marketing, entrepreneurship, finance, and operations in order to play an important role in small- to large-sized businesses, as well as entrepreneurial ventures. In your third year, you can choose a specialization in one of two key areas: marketing or management.

All Business Administration students are required to complete an unpaid placement in the final semester of the program. The placement provides an opportunity for you to put your business management, project management and human resources management skills to the test in an actual workplace of your choice. This hands-on approach allows you to gain experience in your chosen field while building relationships and your résumé.
