Business Administration Program

Enter the World of Business

A minor in the business administration program is ideal for any RIT undergraduate students from outside Saunders College of Business interested in a broad exposure to the world of business. Students, ranging from technical programs to liberal arts, will get an introduction to business disciplines and enhance their education. The business administration program provides an understanding of business principles and a more substantial skill set for any non-business student as they begin their career.

Students interested in pursuing a master's in business administration degree could strategically use certain business minor courses to waive certain MBA foundation courses for an accelerated 4+1 MBA.
