Business Administration

Learn to make things happen.

Organizations seek leaders who can use their knowledge of the market to enable innovation. From corporate managers to small business owners, these pioneers fuel opportunities and reinvent industries — changing the world for the better.

Florida Southern's Bachelor of Science in Business Administration prepares you to tackle today's most pressing business challenges by preparing you with the skills needed to manage a company's assets — properties, people, and financial resources — to contribute to its bottom line.

By engaging in hands-on, real-world experiences, you'll delve into essential business topics such as accounting, data analytics, ethics, finance, and law, cultivating an understanding of how organizations run at every level. You'll also develop the analytical skills to make data-informed business decisions and the communications expertise to present those decisions effectively, leadership abilities that will allow you to move seemlessly into a wide range of job possibilities.

My teaching philosophy can be summed up in one phrase: Make it matter. Everybody learns best when the subject matter excites and matters to them. They must have hands-on, realistic activities that immerse them in the subject on a personal level, pushes them to be creative, and encourages them to reach higher and achieve more than they ever thought they could.

Career Tracks

Florida Southern provides interdisciplinary education to our business administration students through a number of career tracks allowing students to select 12 hours of elective courses based upon their career goals. The career track does not appear on the official transcript.
