Program Overview

The Business Administration Department prepares each student to take a responsible position within the world of business equipped with a knowledge of business theories, policies, and procedures.

The curriculum is based in the liberal arts, coupled with professional courses and a variety of practical business experiences including the opportunity for experiential learning through internships, structured to give the participant an opportunity to apply the theory of the classroom to a specific work experience.

  • Accounting Concentration, Business Administration, B.S.
  • Management Concentration, Business Administration, B.S.

Career Opportunities

The faculty deliver a sound, practical and useful approach to their program. Our emphasis on career preparation coupled with field-based experiences provides that competitive advantage for a student applying for that first job, graduate school or a promotion.

If job placement is a standard of success, then Business Administration graduates have been very successful. Within six months of graduating, more than 93 percent of Business graduates have found employment in their chosen fields. Business majors do well in the marketplace. Eighty-three percent of our graduates report finding full-time positions within six months of graduation. More important than immediate success, though, are the long-term prospects for Fitchburg State graduates. The skills, knowledge base and adaptability students acquired during their time on campus prepare them for the inevitable changes in the marketplace.
