Business Administration

You can influence positive change in the world through business, and Champlain's major in Business Administration will help you develop the broad range of skills you need to do just that. Champlain's flexible BSBA major provides you with a solid foundation in business principles and empowers you to customize your degree through a minor, internships and electives. 

Starting in your first semester, the Stiller School's hands-on approach allows you to explore how businesses function. Whether you aspire to work in a small company, a large corporation or a nonprofit, the combination of your intensive business education and extensive hands-on experience will place you in competitive demand upon graduation.

Integrated Business Experience

In addition to developing your expertise in business administration, the Robert P. Stiller School of Business not only prepares you exceptionally well but also gives you a four-year, cross-business education that answers the marketplace demand for business school graduates with demonstrable knowledge, skills and hands-on experience in all the disciplines that make up the field of business. Learn more about our Integrated Business Experience.

Small Class Sizes

Classes in the Stiller School will never be in a giant lecture hall. In the Business Administration program, your largest class size will be 24 students, and the professors you have in your first semester are the same professors who teach advanced and specialized classes. You'll have the opportunity for one-on-one interactions and mentorship from your professors, who bring their real-world knowledge into the classroom.

Choose a Minor

The BSBA major is designed with plenty of electives courses to enable every student to select a minor that complements their business major. Choose from a growing list of minors to customize your college experience and build your unique personal brand. Many students choose to minor in Digital Marketing, Accounting, Data Analytics, Environmental Policy or Organizational Innovation, among others.  

Become an Entrepreneur

We offer elective courses in entrepreneurship and if you're inspired to launch your first business while still a student, our Build Your Own Business (BYOBiz®) program will help you through the whole process, from developing your business plan to identifying potential funding sources. 

Study Abroad

You can choose to study at one of our international campuses in Montreal, Canada, or Dublin, Ireland, or anywhere in the world through one of our Global Partners or third-party programs. Explore our study abroad options.

Freeman Foundation Grant

The Robert P. Stiller School of Business sent 25 students to Shanghai in 2015 for an international internship, courtesy of a $200,000 grant from the Freeman Foundation. This opportunity provided our students with the chance to gain both international and professional work experience, as well as valuable language skills at the Shanghai University of International Business and Economics. The program will continue for its fourth year in summer 2016. Learn more about the Freeman Foundation Grant.
