The Business Administration concentration is designed for those students that do not currently have as their focus the direct supervision of personnel but want to obtain the necessary education and skills to own and operate a small business or to become a significant contributor to a business owner or entrepreneur.  A variety of business courses are provided for the student to accomplish these goals.  The student may also choose to gain on-the-job experience by selecting cooperative education (COE) as a business elective.
