Career Paths

A Business Administration degree gives students real-world tools and a global perspective that prepares them for a wide range of careers including business development, operations management, marketing, financial advising and investing, accounting, human resources and more.

The Barowsky School also offers high-impact career services to business students. Their school-specific Career Services department works directly with employers and recruiters to help students find internships and new graduates find full-time positions in a variety of industries and roles. 


Through a focus on organizational design, function, behavior and management, this concentration develops one of the most important skills in business: how to manage change. Areas of study include entrepreneurship, human resource management, communication, and organizational behavior.

Financial Management
A Financial Management concentration gives students the critical money management and investment skills needed to make complex business decisions in a fluctuating and uncertain economy.

Accounting teaches the invaluable “language of business.” Students in this concentration become fluent in financial records and reports, income to debt ratio, revenue vs. expenses, and other aspects of accounting essential for truly understanding a company.

The Marketing concentration is essential for future business leaders who want to understand why the consumer buys. Marketing teaches students how to communicate effectively and think creatively, as well as to develop, price, distribute and promote products, services and ideas.

Global Business
In a globalized economy, where multinational corporations are increasingly common, the Global Business concentration prepares students for the international challenges facing tomorrow’s business leaders.
