Learn to lead in any business.
Business majors graduate with skills that can be easily translated into any industry and any workplace, which is why they are consistently among the most employed and in-demand college graduates, and often have higher than average starting salaries. With an online Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Loyola University New Orleans, you can start on the path to a successful career, while benefiting from the convenience of online education and the prestige of a Loyola degree.
Loyola’s online BBA provides broad coverage of all of the essential functional areas of business and offers you the opportunity to specialize your degree to your career goals by majoring in Finance or Management. All business students complete a core curriculum that explores topics in economics, marketing, finance, and accounting, as well as enroll in both general and major-specific electives. The program also includes an internship component to give you valuable, real-world experience and to build up your professional network.
With a degree in finance, you’re investing in your career. If you’re willing to work hard, are attracted to a challenge, and want a career that will put you in the center of business decision-making, finance is the major for you. Our online BBA in Finance program will give you a strong understanding of financial analysis and capital management, the ability to manage finances for an organization so you can be an effective business leader, and tools for assessing a firm’s financial position and prospects to make sound investments. In addition to learning core business principles, you’ll take finance-specific electives, such as Financial Institutions and Analysis of Financial Statements. By the time you graduate, you’ll be prepared to make a difference in any kind of organization – whether it’s a bank or a non-profit – as a financial analyst, consultant, investor, accountant, or entrepreneur.
Management has the broadest scope of all business disciplines, which translates into career flexibility. You’ll learn how to formulate a strategic vision for a company by looking first at the big picture, then organizing and directing resources to make that vision a reality. In addition to the Business Core courses, students in the online BBA in Management program take management-specific electives designed to teach strategic planning, interpersonal negotiation, problem-solving, and resource management skills. With a management major and your general business preparation in areas such as accounting, finance, and marketing, you’ll be prepared to become a successful business leader and entrepreneur in any industry or organizational setting.
