Business Administration

Olivet College’s Business Administration Department faculty will teach you to think both creatively and analytically – combining courses and activities related to the nature and operation of both for–profit and nonprofit organizations. Beyond the classroom, our faculty are committed to your success, working one-on-one to ensure you meet your personal career goals.

Each of our courses emphasizes a strategic management approach to decision making and problem solving. You won’t simply memorize jargon and facts; you will develop strong analytical and group project skills by working with case studies representing situations you may face on the job. This process ultimately prepares you to adapt to the rapidly changing business environment. In addition, you will work to demonstrate knowledge and applications of ethical business standards and commitment to diversity in the workplace throughout your time at Olivet College.

Programs

* Minor Only / ** Major or Minor

We get conscientious students who embrace the insurance and risk management industry and are excited about the opportunities they see ahead of them. Most of the industry workforce is very close to retirement or nearing that point. The need for insurance is growing more and more as the economy grows. If you go in and perform and hit the ground running, you have the opportunity to move up pretty quickly.
