Selected major: Business Administration
Business administrators are expected to know how businesses function and how to ensure they run smoothly and efficiently.
In this major, you’ll gain an essential understanding of business operations including organisational behaviour and managing workplace relations. You’ll also learn practical skills in areas like data analytics, data collection, strategic planning and project management.
The aim of this major is not to make you an instant expert; it’s to give you the confidence to ask intelligent questions so you will be able to get the answers you need for successful administrative work in any industry or workplace.
