Business Administration

Concordia’s Business Administration program offers the most important component of business education - reality. Concordia students learn to translate theories and knowledge from their classes into informed decision-making. Before entering the business world, they are involved in courses that address both the people and practical sides of business.

Highlights of the program include:

  • Professors with professional experience whose teaching reflects the reality of the workplace
  • A focus on professional skills such as leadership, communication, problem solving, and teamwork
  • A high level of personal attention for each student
  • Core classes cover management, marketing, economics, law, finance, accounting, and statistics. Students also learn to prepare for the changing global business environment with a solid liberal arts base and a cross-cultural appreciation for other nations and traditions.
  • Above all, Concordia produces principled business professionals that build successful careers while being socially and ethically responsible.

Undergraduate Program Specializations

International Management
This program was developed in consultation with business leaders with a global perspective and emphasizes the critical thinking and communications skills necessary to succeed in the global environment. The four-year program is structured around three disciplines: business, modern languages, and international studies. English as a Second Language is also offered and internships in nearby Manhattan are part of the degree. Concordia’s proximity to hundreds of international corporate headquarters, our strong academic tradition, and respected business and language programs all combine to prepare students to meet the future management needs of global employers.

Students that perform well in the required accounting courses have the opportunity to pursue a specialized course of study in Accounting, the “grammar” of business. This specialization can provide a depth of knowledge in the discipline that will serve students well as they progress in their accounting/financial careers. Classes include Intermediate Accounting I, Intermediate Accounting II, Cost Accounting, Auditing, Taxation, plus Financial Analysis and Planning.


Business students have gained real-world experience in a constantly growing number of corporate settings. Some companies that have supported Concordia students include:
