Business Administration - BA, BS
St. Kate’s business administration major prepares students to manage people, products and services in local and international marketplaces. Designed with leading organizations, our courses equip students with the skills and knowledge employers seek including the latest marketing trends in digital media and social marketing. The student's ability to lead others will be enhanced through course work in leadership, strategic management, change management, and business analytics. The skills students develop will be strengthened through participation in real-world projects with partnering organizations. In addition, students will run a business in their strategic management capstone through an interactive simulation program that integrates all the major functional areas of business: human resources, sales, finance and marketing.

All majors are required to complete a business portfolio. The portfolio is the vehicle that enables students to integrate the life skills and knowledge they bring with them and the knowledge, skills and values learned within the courses and field experiences throughout the program. This portfolio allows students to validate their experiences at St. Catherine University.
The portfolio is cumulative in nature; most aspects are completed as part of course work. Students must present the portfolio to their advisor no later than September 30 for December graduation or February 15 for May graduation.
For specific portfolio (BUSI 4800 Business Portfolio) requirements, please refer to the Professional Portfolio Handbook.
