Business Administration

The BSC business administration major enables students to graduate ready to participate fully in the rapidly changing world of business, as well as to pursue graduate studies. The greatest strength of the business administration program lies in its philosophical commitment to creating “strong generalists” rather than "specialists."

Birmingham Southern's business administration major has been recognized by numerous national and international organizations for program innovation. It is recognized as unique due to its emphasis on team teaching, student team building, continuous programmatic assessment, integration of business disciplines within the liberal arts, and the senior capstone experience.

Awards and recognition have been from The Southwestern Business Deans' Association, Association of American Colleges and Universities, International Academy of Business Administration, Council for Advancement and Support of Education, Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), and the American Association for Higher Education.
