The Business Administration-General Concentration is currently available to students at our Poulsbo campus and by permission only on Western's main campus. For consideration on the Bellingham campus students can contact the Department of Management for details and will be required to have a completed Plan of Study listing preferred program elective courses. Due to limited resources and capacity issues not all major restricted CBE courses will be available for Business Administration-General students.
Western's Business Administration majors explore leadership roles in business and the community, providing students with the perceptual and analytical skills necessary to make decisions and evaluate policies in business, and develop an understanding of the social, economic, and regulatory environments in business. All students earning a degree in Business Administration develop significant understanding of management information systems and computing.
The General Business Concentration allows students to customize their business courses to suit their own business education goals. Rather than concentrating in a specific business discipline such as Finance or Marketing, students may choose to create their own General Business Concentration with the help of faculty advisors.
Western’s Department of Management is part of the College of Business and Economics, which prepares students for positions of leadership and stewardship in management and administration sectors of complex organizations — from small companies to large multinational enterprises.
