Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration

Get the broadest possible perspective on business with the mix-and-match style of our business administration major.

You can align your degree with your personal interests. You can build your own curriculum from each of the six departments in the Miller College of Business. For example, if you like marketing and finance but can’t handle the time commitment for two majors, get a mix of both with a customized degree in business administration.

And then really fly as you discover the wide-open frontier of business management opportunities—from small, entrepreneurial operations to multinational corporations.
