Why Major in Business Administration?

Students major in business administration in order to acquire and develop the technical and behavioral skills necessary to plan, organize, lead, and effectively manage groups and organizations in the business to consumer (B2C), business to business (B2B) and not-for-profit sectors of the marketplace. These skills are developed in the context of a Christian worldview both in the classroom and in the workplace when students include the optional internship in their course plan.

Eastern business department alumni have graduated to serve in a wide-spectrum of careers with small, medium and large firms including retailers, consumer packaged good manufacturers, service businesses, business to business manufacturing firms and social sector organizations including benefit analysts, buyers, distribution managers, human resources managers, import/export agents, insurance agents/brokers, inventory managers, operations managers, and small business owners. Graduates have also gone on to MBA programs throughout the region and nation.

“Due to the small classroom size of Eastern, each of my classes encouraged an open discussion and valued the diverse opinions of each individual. I was able to understand the value of others' opinions and able to think more holistically. This skill set was invaluable as I transitioned to the working world. I truly believe the school as well as the community shaped the woman I am today. I am extremely grateful for everything Eastern has taught me.”
