Business Administration

Every business needs a manager. In fact, many organizations need a manager for each area of their business. With the right skills and training in business administration, that manager could be you.

Holland College offers you two Business Administration programs to match your career goals. Both will give you a foundation in all business functions and how they work together, as well as a solid background in communications—one of the most important skills any manager can have.

You can be confident you’re ready for your first job, because you’ll get plenty of on the job training, real world experience, and hands-on projects; and you’ll get to meet and hear from industry representatives.

Both programs are offered on a part-time or full-time basis and the modules can be designed to make sure you get the skills that best meet your needs and schedule. Contact a program instructor for more information about part-time studies.

This is a US Federal Aid Approved program.
