2023-2024 Undergraduate General Catalog

Business Administration

The goal of the Business Administration curriculum is to broadly educate students for graduate studies and for careers in business, law and public service. We are proud of our ability to draw on Augustana's strong Liberal Arts heritage and incorporate the lessons learned there into business courses. We combine this interdisciplinary knowledge of human behavior and experiences with a rigorous academic foundation in business-related principles to allow students to prepare for careers in business. This integrated approach gives graduates a unique background that has served them well as they have moved into the business world in both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations. Business Administration graduates enjoy a substantial advantage in successful job placements while enjoying a fulfilling quality of life.

The Business Administration major offers a fundamental understanding of accounting, finance, management, marketing, ethics, and statistics, integrated in a way that prepares the graduates to critically analyze and solve problems in a highly creative fashion. Students are encouraged to specialize in one or more areas to further differentiate themselves as they enter the working world. Non-Business majors may choose a Business minor to support their work in other areas.
