LeTourneau’s Business Administration major offers students the flexibility to pursue a minor or secondary major in a non-business area, or a minor in leadership. This allows students to design a degree consistent with their interests – receiving a solid education in the essential areas of business, plus the opportunity to pursue a specialized non-business field of study. As Business Administration majors, students have the opportunity to pursue their individual intellectual interests as they prepare for a career.

OPTIONS
The Business Administration major is available in three formats: the Bachelor of Arts, the Bachelor of Science, and the Bachelor of Science with a Design Technology Concentration. Each offers the same foundational core of business courses.

Bachelor of Arts
The Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration combines a broad background of liberal arts studies with a concentration in business courses that will prepare students for positions in finance, economics, marketing, and management, or as a course of study in pre-law to prepare for law school. The Bachelor of Arts requires a minor and the study of a foreign language.

Bachelor of Science
The Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration offers flexibility in the selection of general electives and typically includes an intensified focus on mathematics. While either degree can be combined with a minor in leadership or in a non-business field, the Bachelor of Science options do not require the selection of an academic minor.

Design Technology Concentration
With a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration and a concentration in Design Technology, students develop expertise in technical design and a thorough knowledge of business and management. This background can prepare students to work in professional engineering or architectural firms, government agencies, or industrial firms in such areas as machine design, electrical design, technical writing, municipal planning, or operations layout.
A business administration student can also work toward a teaching certificate in secondary education through the Teacher Education program.
