The Bachelor’s in Business Administration focuses on the functional areas of business – including management, marketing, economics, finance, accounting, law, and statistics. It is designed to provide students with a strong academic foundation in core business functions including general business administration, accounting, finance, project management, information technology, human resources, marketing, international business, logistics and organizational behavior. These competencies are flexible enough that upon graduation, careers in a variety of different fields may be available.
The entire degree program can be completed in just one year and all coursework is offered entirely online, making this the perfect option for students in all locations.
This degree is offered through The College of Mount St. Vincent (CMSV) and St. Peter’s University (SPU). Each college has its own set of requirements and financial aid opportunities.
Your ideal college choice depends on your location and financial aid eligibility.
- New Jersey Residents: SPU is the ideal option as potential financial aid and scholarship benefits for NJ residents are very substantial and can significantly reduce the cost of the program.
- New York Residents: CMSV may be the ideal option as potential financial aid benefits for NYS residents are greatest when attending a NYS college.
- Students who reside outside of NY/NJ choose SPU, as potential scholarships are greatest when attending this institution.
We are proud to have partnered with two exceptional colleges to offer this degree:
- The College of Mount Saint Vincent (CMSV), a highly ranked college in NYS, featuring an outstanding undergraduate Business department.

Where can your degree take you?
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 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 its 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.
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.
