Business Administration: A Destination for Engaged Learners and Innovative Leaders

Developing students as engaged learners so they can grow to become innovative leaders is what we do. The Cofrin School of Business is focused on preparing students for professional success through coursework, internships and professional development events. Earning a Bachelor of Business Administration Degree will prepare graduates for competitive, respected careers and which path you choose is up to you!

The School of Business offers four emphasis/concentration areas within the Business Administration major: Business Analytics, Entrepreneurship, General Business and Supply Chain Management. Many students will even choose to complete two emphasis areas making them a better qualified job applicant for internships and post-graduate employment opportunities! The core coursework for these emphasis areas do seamlessly overlap with the other majors offered in the Cofrin School of Business so a student could easily complete a double major by adding a few extra classes. A common choice!

Students majoring in Business Administration have the option of taking classes on campus or fully online, when pursuing the degree with the Business Analytics, General Business or Supply Chain Management emphasis. The Business Analytics and Entrepreneurship emphasis can be completed almost entirely online, only two classes are face-to-face.

What Students Say

Graduate holding a degree

“The experience I had at UWGB is not what I expected starting college as a freshman. The Accounting and Business faculty were amazing, personable, and always looking out for what was best for me and my future. I was able to get involved in student organizations, travel abroad, and participate in an accounting internship while studying at UWGB. All of these opportunities broadened my business network and created new relationships with other students and professors allowing me to further develop and obtain a full-time position after graduation.”
