July 16, 2012 General 0 Comments

Business Administration & Business ManagementIf you are considering the idea of pursuing a business degree program, it’s important to consider the many available concentrations. While you may not initially think about it, the area you choose to pursue could influence your eventual career opportunities.

This makes it even more important to understand exactly what is involved in each concentration of business.

Business Administration

Business administration is a concentration often confused with business management. Business administration deals with the overarching skills associated with leading a team of people. Some business administration courses you may see in a quality degree program include:

  • Principles of Economics
  • Ethics
  • Statistics
  • Critical Thinking
  • Fundamentals of Communication
  • Business Communications
  • International Business
  • Network Administration

Business Management

Business management is usually a defined concentration within business administration. While the same overarching skills apply to both positions, a business management degree program focuses on more advanced topics in management such as:

  • Healthcare Management
  • Business Law
  • Personnel/Human Resource Management
  • Critical Thinking
  • Introductory Psychology
  • Business Policy Seminar

Pursue the area of business administration that interests you. Find a school that offers business administration degree programs with varying concentrations to suit your needs.
