- International Business
- Management Information Systems
At Augustana, a strong liberal arts foundation combined with pre-professional study equals a valuable experience for business majors, especially when they add an internship to their experience.
- Business Writing
Business administration is one of Augustana’s largest, most popular academic programs. The department has 11 full-time faculty members, nine of whom hold a Ph.D.
The department’s focus on written and spoken communication is reinforced by small, interactive classes that encourage discussion among peers and faculty. The average class size for business administration classes generally ranges from 7 to 34 students.
All students complete Senior Inquiry, a capstone project or paper in which students draw from their comprehensive learning experience. Each student develops his or her Senior Inquiry in partnership with a professor or internship mentor.
