Business Administration

What Is Business Administration?

Business administration is perhaps the most important component of a business's success. Administrators and managers must plan, organize, staff, direct, control, and lead. They bear the responsibility to maintain an environment in which individuals, working together in groups, can accomplish their common missions and objectives.
Jobs in Business Administration
Competing successfully in modern business requires a variety of knowledge and skills. Good administrators need to be generalists who know about such areas as business law, management, human resources, marketing, economics, money and banking, accounting, and computers. They also need to have good written and oral communication skills.
What Business Administrators Do
Business administrators are like the oil that keeps the wheels of commerce turning. They are involved in all aspects of running organizations and may work in private industry, public enterprises or for non-profit companies. They work as managers, supervisors and assistants, and their job duties are as varied as the organizations they work for.
