Purpose Statement

The purpose of the Northern Arizona University Bachelor of Administration Program is for students who do not seek a traditional bachelor’s degree in business but need to develop basic knowledge, skills and competencies that will enable them to hold a variety of administrative and management positions in the private sector. Students who lack the technical preparation will take two prerequisite leveling courses designed by the faculty to prepare them for the upper-division coursework included in the Administration Degree Programs. A significant feature of these programs is that they provide flexible transfer options for students holding a wide range of associate degrees in the arts and humanities, social sciences and technical/occupational fields as well as students who have not completed an associate degree but have earned transfer credits from community colleges and other four-year institutions.

Administration students will be able to (1) communicate business information professionally (oral and written), (2) recognize and solve business problems in an ethical manner, (3) understand core management principles (human resources, organizational behavior, global dimensions, information systems, and leadership, as well as accounting, finance, economics and legal environment), and (4) work well in teams, including virtual settings. A global context will be addressed in all relevant classes across the curriculum. We provide online and hybrid classes for learning through the application of technology, as well as opportunities to study as part-time students. We provide opportunities for students to apply leadership skills through Phi Beta Lambda, as well as competitive challenges involving other business programs in Arizona and nationally. We collaborate with other universities globally and within the region to provide direct international experience. We facilitate regional business development through our innovative incubator program.

Our faculty is selected for their scholarly and business management experience. We contribute to the body of knowledge primarily through engaged scholarship, including research, publications, and scholarly professional activities regarding teaching, discovery, integration, and application.

We value visionary and innovative leadership; lifelong student, faculty & organizational learning; ethical and socially responsible behavior; creating and improving excellent quality & value – personal and societal; and diversity of people and ideas.
