Business Administration at Olivet College
Olivet College’s Business Administration Department faculty will teach you to think both creatively and analytically – combining courses and activities related to the nature and operation of both for–profit and nonprofit organizations. Beyond the classroom, our faculty are committed to your success – working one-on-one to ensure you meet your personal career goals.
Each of our courses emphasizes a strategic management approach to decision making and problem solving. You won’t simply memorize jargon and facts; you’ll develop strong analytical and group project skills by working with case studies representing situations you may face on the job. This process ultimately prepares you to adapt to the rapidly changing business environment. In addition, you’ll work to demonstrate knowledge and applications of ethical business standards and commitment to diversity in the workplace throughout your time at Olivet College.
