Where can your degree take you?

While the following positions are only a sample of the possible careers a student with a business administration degree may pursue, they demonstrate the numerous industries and organizational roles that may be available in the business field.

Sales Manager

A sales manager oversees a company’s sales team and is ultimately responsible for revenue production within an organization. Responsibilities typically include setting sales goals, analyzing sales data and creating sales training programs for the sales representatives. Sales managers also project sales and assess the profitability of products and services.

Business Consultant

Business consultants, also referred to as management consultants, help companies propose ways to improve a business’s efficiency. They advise managers on how to make an organization more profitable through reduced costs and increased revenue. Management consultants generally organize information about a problem and design a procedure for improvement, recommend new systems and organization changes, and confer with managers to ensure changes are working.

Market Research Analyst

A market research analyst helps a company understand who their customers are, what products they should be selling, and how they can successfully promote those products. Market research analysts often design surveys and train and supervise interviewers who conduct the surveys. They then analyze the research and report the results to management.

HR Specialist

While the primary function of human resources specialists is to recruit, screen, interview and hire employees, most human resources specialists are trained in all HR functions, and therefore they frequently handle other human resources work, such as employee relations, compensation and benefits, and training. These daily tasks could include processing payroll and administering benefits, as well as ensuring all human resources functions are in compliance with federal, state and local regulations.
