Business Administration Major


The actions of the few can have a profound impact on the many — for good and for bad. One of the places where that has become most evident is the business world. Recent improprieties have shaken the confidence of consumers and employees, even for the vast majority whose companies play by the rules. Now, more than ever, the world demands business professionals who are not only good at what they do but who conduct themselves ethically.

Ethics? Always.

As a business administration major, ethics and social responsibility will permeate everything you learn and do. Marquette was talking about business ethics decades before it became fashionable to do so. Since 1910, we’ve been offering a values-based business education built upon a foundation of the liberal arts — especially philosophy and theology.

Meet a mentor.

In your junior year as a business administration major, you will participate in our one-on-one mentoring program and be paired with an executive from a Milwaukee-area firm. The mentors, who are Marquette alumni and friends, can provide you with valuable insights into career choices, business etiquette and your own job search — and they can help you start your career network.

A strong foundation.

A cross-disciplinary business curriculum will teach you and your fellow business administration majors the skills, knowledge and perspectives businesses expect. Add to this a series of business leadership courses designed to make you a better communicator, team player and leader, and you will have a strong base upon which to build your career.

Study business in the heart of the city.

Our location near downtown Milwaukee lets our business administration majors see — and do — business up close through hundreds of internships.

Some of the classes you may take:

  • Behavior and Organization
  • Introduction to Financial Management
  • Management of Human Resources
