Message from the Chair

Preparing you for life

The faculty who teach in the Business Administration Program of Saint Mary's College are committed to to fully preparing students for successful careers in a world of commerce that is ever-changing and increasingly complex. Our majors have the opportunity to gain technical expertise in a liberal arts learning environment in which intellectual inquiry, ethical sensitivity, and communication skills are nurtured by an accomplished and caring faculty.

This is an exciting time to explore the Business Administration Program as we roll out a new curriculum, grounded in responsible leadership and global business. Our general business program gives you a thorough grounding in all functional areas of business. Or if in-depth study in a particular discipline interests you, we offer a variety of concentrations: Global Business, Entrepreneurship, Marketing, Finance, and Digital Media.

Exciting opportunities for student engagement lie outside of the classroom as well. Our ground-breaking Gateway Program offers you internships and executive mentoring; tutoring and study groups; career development; additional communication and global awareness practica; membership in the Saint Mary's Business Club and our award-winning student chapter of the American Marketing Association, which afford you additional opportunities to interact with executives from the local business community; and much more.

We welcome the opportunity to answer any questions you might have about the offerings of the Business Administration Program.
