B.S.: Business Administration

The School of Management Bachelor of Science in Business Administration program prepares aspiring business leaders for success in an evolving, uncertain, and dynamic business environment. The challenges of the business frontiers have never been so exciting, and our curriculum, driven by the concept that technology is transformational, the business world is globalized, and that these jointly impact on the ability of those with entrepreneurial inclination to create and implement new and innovative business models, ensures that our graduates are ready to add value and change the face of the business landscape when they enter the workforce.

Students must complete the NYIT program core and additional general education courses, the complete business program core, six courses in a chosen option, and business electives. All students in the Business Administration program choose from one of the following options (curriculum requirements of the program are on the linked pages), which form a concentrated area of study: Accounting, Finance, Human Resource Management, International Business, Management, Marketing, Small Business and Entrepreneurial Studies.
