The business administration program at Transylvania offers a broad based education for successful careers and graduate work. The program integrates knowledge from all areas of business and allows you to apply concepts to solving problems faced by companies and organizations.
Depending on your choice, the courses available can prepare you for a range of opportunities from starting your own business to joining a Fortune 500 company. The business classes, along with the general liberal arts courses required of all Transylvania students, provide a well-rounded education that can best suit your interests.
A distinguishing characteristic of the program is the opportunity to specialize in one of four subject areas: management, marketing, finance, or hospitality. All concentrations give you the analytic and strategic skills necessary for your career choice. These concentrations expand Transylvania University's writing curriculum, developing your analytical and creative abilities, by having you complete upper level projects with local companies.
