Business Administration

As a Business Administration major at Illinois College, you will have the opportunity to put knowledge you learn in the classroom to use in real world environments. These experiential learning opportunities have included projects that involved researching dynamic ticket pricing for the Milwaukee Brewers and working with companies like Skyline® Exhibits & Graphics Mid-America to pinpoint trends that will keep businesses ahead of the curve. Skyline®, North America’s leading trade show and event company, reported they had a wonderful and profitable experience with Dr. Drea’s advanced business class in the Spring of 2016.
Direct exposure to the real world is not the only component to the Business Administration program. Interdisciplinary coursework allows other areas of teaching to intertwine into your learning – from psychology-based courses in organizational behavior to communication techniques on advertising and marketing best practices.
You will graduate with a skillset acquired from a liberal arts education that you can apply within any context or situation. A Business Administration degree will have you thinking critically, solving complex problems, working effectively in teams, writing well and speaking articulately – skills that employers are seeking from graduates.
A degree in Business Administration allows you to focus on your career interests. You can specialize in Agribusiness, Marketing, Management or Sports Management and be prepared to take the next steps, whether that be your first job, an internship or grad school.

“My internships and the education I received at IC gave me the confidence to pursue my passion of working in social media marketing. I don't think people from other schools get as lucky as I am right out of college. I have my dream job and I owe it to the experiences I had at Illinois College."
