The business administration program prepares students for a variety of career opportunities. It provides students with a broad overall understanding of the different functional disciplines of business and prepares them for positions of responsibility in business organizations. A major in business administration is offered for those students wishing to minor in an area outside of business.
The programs in Business Administration at Murray State University provide the graduate with a variety of career options. The programs prepare the student for positions in middle- and upper-level management where knowledge of many fields is a necessity for advancement. The varied background offered by the business administration programs is also helpful to entrepreneurial students who wish to start their own business. From a "Mom and Pop" retail store to a multinational corporation, graduates of the business administration programs from MSU will be prepared for whatever the future holds.
Business Administration programs offered:
Murray State University students in the Area of Business Administration program may complete a dual degree program with the Ėcole Supėrieure de Commerce in Saint Etienne, France. In this program, students will complete a year of academic study at ESC-St Etienne and receive a Bachelor degree from that institution when they are awarded a BAB/BSB in Business Administration from Murray State. These students would then hold degrees from both institutions. The ESC-St Etienne courses in this program are taught in English.
This program also allows Murray State students to study for a semester at ESC-St Etienne as exchange students without earning a dual degree.
