Why Study Business Administration at Florida Tech

why study business administration

We define business administration as the efficient utilization of all business resources—including new ideas, goods and processes—toward the dual goals of enhancing profit and creating a better society. Our approach to teaching is both conceptual and practical. You’ll learn insights from the wisdom of past and present scholars, but you’ll also apply these ideas to real-world business scenarios, including ventures you’ll help orchestrate. Most of our faculty have business consulting or business management experience and bring their case examples and applied research into the classroom.
