Business Administration

Learn to thrive in the business world by improving your ability to analyze, communicate, and think independently. You’ll choose a specialization in finance, management, marketing, or self-designed business. Heidelberg’s Business Administration program emphasizes preparation for practical decision making in a business environment. You'll receive a foundation in economics, accounting and finance while studying topics like marketing and managing operations, ethics, and organization. Our faculty members have practical experience in a variety of industries and use it to provide you with real-world examples to complement discussions of business theories.

My favorite part of being a Heidelberg student was the camaraderie among all students. Everyone supported one another. I had the pleasure of meeting so many different people with different backgrounds, it helped me be able to interact with any crowd and to be in the position to find success. I am so grateful and happy that I made the decision to go to Heidelberg.
