The Business Administration major creates a host of wonderful opportunities for the student to prepare for full-time employment. Excellence in leadership is one of the critical issues facing organizations today. For-profit and nonprofit organizations rely on Godly and effective leaders to guide their organizations through the day-to-day challenges.

The need for committed Christian leaders working in for-profit and nonprofit organizations has never been greater. Excelling in business requires the ability to think strategically and to make tough decisions. This requires confidence in one’s ability and wise counsel. You will build that confidence with a Business Administration degree from Mid-Atlantic Christian University (MACU).
