Business Administration

Why major in Business Administration?

As a Business Administration major at Hastings College, you’ll build your knowledge of business concepts as they apply to the global workplace and the ethical challenges you’ll encounter throughout your career. Our faculty will push you to hone your communication skills, think like an entrepreneur and explore a second major or minor to broaden your horizons and give you an edge in today’s job climate.

Before graduation you’ll complete a capstone project in which you’ll investigate in totality, analyze and make recommendations for a public U.S. corporation — a culmination of your classroom lessons and internship experiences.
