Business management vs. business administration: Differences between the two degrees

 

While there are similarities between this Bachelor of Science in business management and the Bachelor of Arts in business administration, there are key differences that set these two degrees apart.

In this Bachelor of science program, you’ll focus on the “people side” of business while developing key skills and strategies needed to manage others. These acquired skills will assist in the process of communicating with and leading employees within an organization.

Differently, the Bachelor of Arts in business administration emphasizes general business knowledge needed to manage a business’s operations, such as forecasting demand, planning inventory and purchasing services for an organization.

Will my diploma say ‘online’?

No, Arizona State University’s diplomas don’t specify whether you earn your degree online or in person. All diplomas and transcripts simply say “Arizona State University.”

Business management courses

The curriculum in this online business management degree combines both theory and practice. You’ll learn about topics ranging from the global economy and e-business to ethical leadership. Skill-based exercises, case discussions and team-based projects play important roles in building the key skills needed to be a successful manager.
