Business administration relates to all aspects of running a business. It involves a lot more than filing paperwork or balancing expenses. A core function of business administration is to help companies manage resources wisely. Day-to-day operations can deplete companies’ reserves, so administrators keep a careful eye on expenses and processes and are continually seeking to improve efficiency.
Administrative duties vary by position and industry. In general, these professionals are responsible for taking care of tasks that correspond with sustaining the business on an administrative level.
A business administration degree can be applied to almost every industry because the ability to organize, plan, and manage is universally attractive. Businesses of all kinds need skilled administrators to help improve and streamline operations.
Earning a business degree can mean working in various roles or capacities. Entry-level positions can often be found in industries such as finance, sales, human resources, management, or the non-profit sector. Some administrators support entrepreneurs and start-up companies while others prefer working in more corporate or service-oriented environments.
