Business Scholarships

This major is often referred to as business administration and management. As a scholastic field, it trains individuals how to be business leaders and how to achieve the financial goals of a business or organization. It is the single most popular college major and as such is offered at nearly every college and university out there. Scholarship opportunities for business administration are also widely available, which will become plain as you continue reading.

In a typical 4-year business administration and management degree program, you'll enroll in courses such as accounting, economics, marketing and advertising, foundations of leadership, statistics, operations management and information systems. This type of program requires a strong background in math with courses such as accounting and statistics being universally required.  

In addition to your core business courses, you'll also enroll in a specified number of general education courses. Most programs also feature both an internship and a Capstone project as degree requirements. With an internship, you receive course credit while working in an actual business administration dynamic. With a Capstone project, you apply what you've learned in the classroom to a semester-long project concerning business strategy or business policy. Your program may also have a semester-abroad offering, in which you work in a foreign country for course credit. This is becoming increasingly popular as our business awareness grows more and more global.

The ideal degree candidate for this major should be prepared for lots of hard work. Also, you'll want to be strong in math and computer applications. Knowledge of a foreign language wouldn't hurt, either. Concentrations within the degree are also available. Examples of these include finance, leadership, marketing and organizational behavior. If selecting a particular concentration from within the larger field of business administration and management is part of your educational goals, be certain to research the program carefully as not all concentrations are offered universally.

Employment opportunities for this major are expected to be greater than average over the coming decade. However, be aware that the job scene for business majors is bound to change as the economic picture of our country fluctuates. Job growth should be most robust with companies that specialize in a particular type of business function.
