The SJC Department of Business Administration is accredited by the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE), an achievement of which only 25% of business departments in the US can boast. Our Department prepares students to be flexible, adaptable, and successful by stressing three key components: business sense, critical skills, and personal character. By combining these three elements with practical experience, our Department of Business Administration creates students who are prepared for a wide range of careers in successful and rewarding businesses and non-profit organizations.
The SJC Department of Business Administration includes the following programs and majors:

Inside the Classroom
As upperclassmen, Department of Business Administration students are required to pass through BUS 351: The Crucible. During the course of the semester, students’ Accounting, Business Administration, and Economics skills are put to the test as students compete in a sophisticated competition against their classmates. After completing the Crucible, our students have the experience needed to work for successful business and non-profit organizations.
