    Program Overview

    Stevenson University Online’s Bachelor of Science in Business Administration is designed for working adults who want to expand their business acumen through obtaining the knowledge and critical thinking skills essential to effective business decision-making.

    Our Business Administration degree program prepares students for careers that require a broad understanding of business fundamentals. Students will be equipped with the ability to integrate core business functions, analyze and explain business problems, and propose solutions — both independently and in teams. The program culminates with a team-based capstone project that involves students demonstrating their in-depth understanding, application, and integration of the full spectrum of business disciplines. Developed for working professionals, this program is offered fully online in 8-week sessions.

    Employment Law and Mediation Area of Focus

    Current business trends show a growing need for employees that are well-versed in the legal issues that affect an organization and its talent. As a result, Stevenson offers four focused electives for students interested in increasing their knowledge of employment law and mediation. Students learn employer needs in the complex field of immigration law, an increasingly important component as businesses continue to expand globally. Students also examine the use of mediation within the field of alternative dispute resolution including applications to employment disputes. Area of focus is optional.
