Here's what a current student says about the Business Administration program:

"When I came to MSU from Slovakia, Europe, I knew almost nothing about business or marketing. A body of experienced professors, personal contact with them, opportunity to ask questions and business related extracurricular involvement has formed my knowledge to a stage where I am confident enough to run a small business or manage a corporation. MSU 'laid a ground work for me to build on - just about every firm or organization needs managers. My business administration major has opened the door to the world of limitless job opportunities, and I am thankful for that."
