Business Administration and Business Communications

Business Administration and Business Communications

Chestnut Hill College’s Accelerated Adult Degree Program is designed for the adult learner.  We offer two business programs -- Business Adminstration and Business Communications. 

The Business Administration program emphasizes the importance of integrating a liberal arts curriculum with a solid foundation of business courses to prepare students to solve real-life business problems in a socially sensitive, ethical manner. Students will learn how to analyze both the qualitative and the quantitative variables in the decision-making process as they develop the skills needed to succeed as business professionals. This program will also prepare students for graduate studies in business administration or finance. 

The Business Communications program provides you with the communication and technical skills, graphics, and information sciences necessary to compete in the business marketplace. The curriculum emphasizes fundamental marketing procedures, functions of management, applied business and communications technology, and extensive writing and editing skills.
