Hamline business administration student

Business Administration (BBA)

From small family-owned stores to multinational corporations, the core skills that will bring you success in business transcend markets, sectors, and borders. Hamline's bachelor of business administration degree complements our liberal studies and provides you with a powerful understanding of business disciplines. 

You'll develop a wide range of abilities to manage and lead successful organizations in the face of our increasingly complex modern world, and your learning will extend far beyond the classroom. You'll propose and lead academic research projects, prepare for certification exams, dip your toes in the stock market with the Piper investment club, participate in business analytics competitions, and more. In doing so, you'll learn how to network, practice business etiquette, get hands-on experience at internships, and refine your job hunting skills in workshops and with our career coaches.
