Employers tell us that their most successful employees communicate well and understand how their organization works. They know how the functions of marketing, finance and operations connect and how human behaviour impacts the effectiveness of an organization.
Whether you are mid career or beginning your career, the Business Administration program at McMaster, developed in collaboration with the DeGroote School of Business, will help you develop the skills and knowledge that employers are looking for.
Courses can be taken individually or as part of the Diploma. Upon completion of the Diploma, students can apply up to 24 units towards degree studies.
