Business Administration

What does it take to move ahead in any business? When you think about the successful businesses you know, you've probably seen it.  They are operated by people who have a unique understanding of management and finances and who have strong administrative and guidance skills.  All are qualities of a good leader. Our business administration degree is offered online, face-to-face at one of our Graduate & Professional Studies locations throughout Iowa, or in a hybrid of both, and will give you the ability to move ahead in your field faster than you imagine. We also offer flexible schedules that include day and evening classes to make adult learning and degree completion a possibility for our students. Find your nearest location, which could include your local community college.

We aim to separate ourselves from other schools in Iowa that offer business administration through our relevant curriculum taught by instructors who have been successful in the field.

Whether you have business experience or want the skills to enter the field, let Buena Vista University be your key to success.
