Program Overview

The Business Administration major is designed to meet the needs of students seeking careers in business or in management level positions in service organizations. The requirements of the Business major carefully integrate a variety of liberal arts courses with a strong sequence of career-oriented business courses. The liberal arts courses are designed to develop personal values, communication skills, understanding of interpersonal relationships, logical thinking, and an appreciation of the nation’s cultural heritage. The business courses emphasize what is involved in making responsible business decisions, rather than the details on the mechanics of how things are done. The sequence of Business courses, integrated with broadening support courses in the liberal arts areas, prepares students either for positions in accounting, computer applications, marketing, human resources, entry-level management positions, or for admission to graduate schools of business. Business majors first develop a foundation of understanding of basic business concepts, institutions, and related required skills through courses designed to enable them to become acquainted with each of the principal areas involved in organizing and operating a business within the contemporary global economy.

    School Overview

    Urbana University is a private, four-year not-for-profit institution of higher education located in the city of Urbana, Ohio. In 1850, the leadership of the Swedenborgian Church founded the coeducational Urbana Seminary, and began classes for elementary and secondary students in a rented room of a building in the Town Square of Urbana, Ohio. Chartered by the State of Ohio, Urbana Seminary added college classes by the mid-1850s. The school halted classes during the Civil War, and resumed once more in 1866. By the turn of the twentieth century, the school eliminated elementary education, focusing on secondary and two-year college programs. By 1928, the school terminated secondary programs, and in 1968, four-year college programs became permanent. Urbana changed its title to Urbana University in the 1980s. Today, the private, not-for-profit institution remains independent, though it retains support from the Swedenborgian Church.

    With a curriculum focused on liberal arts and career-oriented degrees, Urbana offers associate’s, bachelor’s, and master's degrees, in addition to certificates. Degrees are housed in the following colleges:

    • College of Arts, Science & Education
    • College of Professional & Applied Studies

    Urbana has an online eLearning program that provides a flexible alternative for nontraditional students. Urbana offers several online programs, all accredited at the graduate level. Courses are delivered in eight-week asynchronous formats to better facilitate educational goals.
