Business Administration

Neumann’s Business Administration major is designed to prepare students with a critical understanding of how businesses operate.

Students in Neumann’s Business Administration program have the opportunity to take upper-level courses in economics, finance, accounting, management, marketing, and information management. Engaging with a variety of business courses provides students with interdisciplinary knowledge.

All NU Business Administration students are required to participate in an internship. We assist students in finding placement where they can best apply their skills.
