Mission and Objectives

Business administration is one of the broadest, most popular fields in business but it is also one of the most difficult to define. Concerned with the management and operations of business, BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION practices apply to almost every organization - from major corporations to small businesses, from environmental nonprofits to property development companies. The field's focus on management, however, extends beyond managing people and their work; careers in BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION deal with both the day-to-day operation of an organization as well as with industry-changing economic trends, business technologies, ethical leadership and effective management. Put simply, business administration is a holistic approach to creating a successful, efficient and well-run company.

While business has been around since the dawn of civilization, business administration as a specific field is less than 200 years old. The first "business school" opened in 1819 in Paris, but the school, the French ESCP (Ècole Supèrieure de Commerce de Paris), was simply dedicated to teaching economics and finance. It was not until years later, after the Industrial Revolution, that a number of American and European schools started teaching systemic approaches to management. These scientifically-born business theories have since grown and evolved into today's BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION.
