Business program expands with five new concentrations (Newberry College)
NEWBERRY — Newberry College’s business administration program will introduce five innovative concentrations this fall. Students in one of the institution’s largest areas of study will now be able to specialize their education to meet some of the 21st century’s greatest demands.
The concentrations, all available within the business administration major, include business management and leadership, finance and accounting, entrepreneurship, esport management and gaming, and supply chain management.
“Business administration is a highly versatile program that equips students for success in every sector of the economy,” said Dr. Sarah Bryant, dean of business and communications. “With these new concentrations, students will be able to focus on one aspect of business and take those skills directly into high-demand fields and on to graduate school.”
Business management and leadership dives into the piloting of business, from small firms to major corporations. Coursework will include organizational leadership, human resources management, corporate finance and organizational behavior. Students in this concentration will also be well-prepared to earn their Master of Science in Organizational Development and Leadership, Newberry College’s first new graduate program.
