The business administration department offers professional education to students interested in management, finance, human resource management, international business, marketing and travel industry management.

Competent management practices require an education that is both broad and deep. The business administration program prepares graduates to meet complex technical, economic and social problems and enables them to apply imaginative and responsible leadership to the needs of industry and government.
