In addition to being offered on Northern State University’s main campus (Aberdeen, SD), this major is also offered at Capital University Center (Pierre, SD) and Online.

The Business Administration major at NSU provides a comprehensive exploration of all business disciplines. This generalized business major is designed to complement the studies of those students with diverse majors in the liberal or fine arts or education, or for those students seeking flexibility in completion of a business degree.

In this broad-based business major at NSU, students learn about the fundamentals of accounting, business law, finance, information systems, management, and marketing. Students gain a basic understanding of how organizations work, as well as how to make them successful. The flexibility of the Business Administration program allows students to tailor their program to their needs and interests through the use of electives in the major and the opportunity for internships to gain practical experience.

A Business Administration major will help prepare the student for a career in business, government, in public or social service organizations, or provide an essential business background for those students wishing to pursue an additional (double) major outside the realm of business.

Business Administration may not be added as a double major with any other School of Business major. Business related minors cannot be added to this major.
