Market demand. Competitive earning potential. Career flexibility.
No matter what career path or industry you chose, there is a business component in everything we do.
Unlock the Entrepreneur Inside You
As a general business degree student, you will spend much of your time applying critical thinking skills in order to analyze and develop solutions for complex problems facing a global business economy, working collaboratively within diverse groups, and analyzing case studies with real-world business connections.
You will learn how to recognize current trends in business; use presentation software programs such as Microsoft Office, PowerPoint, Prezi, Open Office Impress, and Apple KeyNote to develop visually appealing and informative business presentations; and honor God by applying Christian principles to your daily decisions, as well as how to apply this knowledge in your own business.
In the end, you will have strengthened your leadership, communication, problem-solving, and teamwork skills; learned the latest business theories and how to apply them to real-world business situations; and gained practical experience by completing a student internship in a business-related area.
Learning Experiences to Grow With
Internship in Your Chosen Field
Students in the business administration degree program will participate in an internship experience similar to the type of career they have chosen for their future. This experience will enable them to apply the knowledge and skills learned in their academic preparation.
You will learn how knowledge and skills are integrated into the professional work environment. You will be able to perform, under supervision, a variety of management duties assigned to you. Lastly, you will also develop confidence and learn new skills through evaluations conducted by your on-site supervisor and the NGU internship supervisor.
Each semester, the Business Administration Department offers students the opportunity to serve as assistants to the faculty members. The benefits to the students include learning how an office functions, interacting with faculty in a non-classroom setting, and seeing more business functions than they do in the classroom.
- Examine and understand human behavior that affects motivation and conduct in the business world.
- Gain insight into HR management practices.
- Integrate Christian principles in strategy decisions.
