Why Choose Nazareth for Business Administration?

How do you define “business intelligence”? At Nazareth, it is a real-world, global vision of business beyond traditional corporate structures. It is entrepreneurial in nature—fueled by innovative new business models—and the ability to apply your intellect, analytical capabilities, and people skills in any given situation.

Our business administration degree program goes beyond textbook theory to give students as much real-world experience as possible. Internships at companies such as Xerox and Paychex give students hands-on experience and often connections to jobs. The program also provides a global business perspective with an emphasis on ethics, entrepreneurship, communication skills, social skills, and teamwork, which provides the best preparation for the 21st century business climate.
