Business Administration Major Guide

You’ll study every aspect of business: accounting, management, marketing, finance, global business issues and social responsibility. Learn to collaborate and work in a team. Get comfortable presenting your ideas to a group. Understand how to think critically and make smart, ethical business decisions.

You’ll have the tremendous advantage of being in Austin, one of the nation’s fastest-growing cities and strongest economies. It’s the ideal place to intern and apply your skills in real-world situations in the industry of your choice. Your professors will leverage their experience — and relationships — to help you build your network.

And St. Edward’s valuable partnerships with Capital Factory, Austin Technology Council and Impact Hub Austin will immerse you in the excitement of startup culture and social entrepreneurship.

After graduation, launch your own startup, or rise through the ranks of a large company to become a CEO. Pursue a career in sales, hospitality, banking or IT management. Live abroad and work for an international company, or apply your skills at a nonprofit. With a degree in Business Administration, you’ll have options – and the skills you need to succeed.
