What is Business Administration ?
Business administration encompasses management, leadership and teamwork. It involves organizing people, allocating resources, making decisions, and directing activities toward common goals and objectives.
Carnegie Mellon’s undergraduate business administration program has earned global recognition for its approach to business management. More than 50 years ago, CMU developed management science, which involves analytical decision-making in complex business environments. Today, nearly all leading business schools include elements of the Carnegie Mellon model.
The Business Administration Program at CMU-Q provides the foundation for motivated students to become leaders in the business arena and have an impact on the economic growth of Qatar, the Middle East and the world.
