Get a big-time business degree in a small-college environment.

Our Business Administration Bachelor’s Degree program teaches all the practical skills you’ll need for a business career. But Mount Ida adds an element that’s too often missing from other business degree programs—the business of relationships. We offer collaborative business administration classes, highly engaged faculty and a lively small-college atmosphere that fosters interaction and friendship, helping you cultivate the interpersonal skills that distinguish successful business people. You’ll master fundamental business methods and technologies, graduating with a business bachelor’s degree that gets you ready for the job market—and for success in the business world.

Our Business Administration Degree Program emphasizes practical knowledge—the type that matters in the workplace, not just in the classroom. You’ll examine real-world business issues and tackle complex problems, both individually and on collaborative project teams. Business administration courses provide you with first-hand experience in core business skills such as:

  • Working on collaborative teams
  • Making presentations
  • Conducting research and writing business and marketing plans
  • Utilizing technology and analytical tools

We’ll also help you find professional internship opportunities in nearby Boston, a global business hub with a strong presence in financial services, life sciences, technology and other dynamic industries. And you’ll complete the bachelor’s degree in business administration with a capstone project that showcases your abilities in front of an industry panel of experts.
