WLC business class with professor and students

Business Administration Major

Be a part of the next wave of business leaders who excel in their field without compromising their faith or morals. A business administration degree from WLC combines Christian ethics with business savvy, preparing you for a multitude of roles in business.

As a business administration major, you’ll learn business fundamentals that can help you succeed as an entrepreneur, family business owner, or as a double-major desiring business acumen to meet your career goals.

You’ll explore what it takes to run a business day-to-day, how to efficiently and effectively manage resources, and how to maximize opportunity for your organization. In this general business program, you’ll explore:

  • Accounting
  • Finance
  • Management
  • Marketing

Our business administration program can give you an understanding of how companies operate and the complexity of real-world decision-making. You’ll build your business acumen and work closely with expert faculty to develop skills in:

  • Critical thinking
  • Negotiation
  • Analysis
  • Ethical decision making
  • Professional communication

You’ll graduate with a sense of purpose, prepared to apply business principles to large corporations, small businesses, nonprofit organizations, or your own company in a highly competitive environment.

Our business graduates are highly sought after by major companies in the Milwaukee area, with many actively inquiring about our students prior to graduation. Within our programs you will have no trouble finding opportunities to interview for internships in large corporations, small businesses, or nonprofits. We have a positive reputation of providing interns who are hard working and excellent communicators. We enable you to activate your greatest potential.

Our expert faculty know what they’re talking about because they’ve lived it

Within the School of Business at Wisconsin Lutheran College, you'll learn from business leaders who’ve worked at some of the largest and most prestigious companies on the Fortune 500 list, while gaining the skills and knowledge needed to apply critical thinking and analysis to business trends, organizations, and industries.

More importantly, our business faculty are Christian leaders, who have learned how to excel in the business world without compromising their faith or morals. They are not simply teaching you from a textbook. The stories and insights about how to succeed in business come from real-life experience. You get to inherit those insights directly from the source.

You’ll be set up to succeed. Class sizes are small, TAs are non-existent, and you won't find sprawling lecture halls here. WLC is a place where you develop personal relationships with not only your classmates but also your professors. They want you to succeed academically as well as grow spiritually in a safe, nurturing environment.

Tailor your education to meet your aspirations

At WLC, you can design your education to meet your passions and aspirations so you can be prepared to live your purpose. Our business administration major is easily pairable with other majors at WLC to allow you the flexibility to craft a college experience that meets your career goals, while ensuring that you still graduate in four years.

Whether you decide to major only in business administration, or pair your major with other program offerings, you’ll graduate from our School of Business with knowledge that extends far beyond textbooks, developing the skillsets most desired in today’s competitive business environment.
