Career Opportunities in Business Administration

Good News for U.S. Jobs
According to the Occupational Outlook Handbook produced by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment in business and financial operations occupations is projected to grow by 17 percent through 2020. Some of these positions will make up for jobs lost during the recession, say officials with the U.S. Bureau of Labor. Plus, increased financial regulations and a need to control costs will drive other jobs. 

Our bachelor’s degree completion program in business administration offers a broad range of business skills. That’s good news because, according to the Occupational Handbook, business graduates who can manage a wide range of responsibilities will fare better than those who specialize.

The bachelor’s completion program in business administration will provide you with a core business skill set that that you can take into virtually any industry. The skills you cultivate as a manager, leader, critical thinker, decision-maker, and problem solver will work in a range of work settings—from a small entrepreneurial operation to a multinational corporation.
