Business Leadership Skills for Working Adults

A Bachelor of Science in Business Administration will help you get ahead in your career. 

At Saint Mary's, you'll learn from professors who have in-field experience and who are committed to your success inside the classroom and after graduation. With courses to include finance, marketing, management, and communications, a degree in business administration will equip you with the skills for success in a variety of rapidly changing business environments. Knowledge learned from the program can be applied to careers in a variety of corporate and nonprofit settings such as business operations, retail, financial, healthcare, and others.

We recognize that success often depends on your personal and professional schedule. That is why we have three options for you to choose from to create your own student-led experience. For those who enjoy the classroom, and the ability to create in-person collaboration, we offer a fully on-ground experience. If you prefer taking some courses on-ground and others online, we offer a blended experience. Finally, if your choice is to take your courses online, you have that option as well. Whichever option will fit your needs!

Finish your degree faster with our accelerated degree plan, saving you time and money.

We Value Experience

As a working adult, you have experience that matters. Your firsthand knowledge will enhance classroom discussions, and you’ll gain skills that employers want. Plus, with Saint Mary's generous credit transfer policies, the coursework that you've already completed will help you finish your degree faster.
