The Business Administration degree program is one of the five degree programs offered in the School of Business Administration.

The Business Administration major - Information Management option integrates information systems and business administration to prepare students for professional careers in the information systems sector. These include positions in systems analysis, business consulting, e-commerce, and information management.
