Business Administration Program Overview
The Business Administration program at the University of Providence allows you to earn a Bachelor’s of Science degree in a number of programs that includes concentrations in general business, finance, or management that closely fit your career interests and goals.
You’ll find that even in an online environment, professors at UP are dedicated to getting to know you and supporting your success. Writing skills and technical tools are integrated throughout the program, allowing each student to reach their full potential for career success. The faculty in the business department have worked in both the non-profit and for-profit arenas, and bring those experiences to the classroom.
In addition to general business knowledge, the Business Administration program emphasizes three primary competencies: interpersonal skills, technological skills, and problem-solving. Ethical decision-making and personal character development are also woven through the coursework. Theoretical and practical concepts are integrated through case studies and projects that take advantage of students’ professional and organizational experience. An internship takes you out of the classroom and into applying the skills and knowledge you have learned for your resume.
The Business Administration program is offered as an on-campus option as well as an online only option.
