Bachelor of Science in Business Management and Administration *
The Business Management and Administration major provides pre-professional training in business, within the context of a comprehensive liberal arts education. The Mount also offers a strong Master of Business Administration (MBA) program. As Business majors, students will be prepared to work in careers within industry, government, or the nonprofit sector, or to pursue further studies at the graduate level. Many internship opportunities exist to reinforce and enhance classroom learning, and students often frame their future careers from these experiences.
