The Public Administration concentration of the Bachelor of Applied Science is designed to prepare business students for a career in public service. Today's public administrators have to deliver public services in close coordination and partnership with businesses and community-based organizations, domestically and internationally. Public service coverage has also grown from the traditional health and sanitation, education, public works, and agriculture to include immigration, security, and the environment concerns. This program deepens the student's critical understanding of governance institutions, policy-makers, legal and regulatory processes, business-government-civil society relations, as well as ethics, accountability, and anti-corruption strategies.

Another benefit of our Bachelor of Science in Business is that we offer guidance for students who wish to start their own companies. Many of our adjunct faculty are entrepreneurs who can guide students through their unique experiences of starting their own businesses. While there is no formula for success in entrepreneurship, a little guidance along the way can make all the difference, and thanks to the small teacher-to-student ratio at HARCO, many of our students form bonds with professors that last far beyond their time with us.


Students who complete the BS in Business, including the 52 General Education program and 18 HARCO Core courses, will be able to:

  1.  Analyze data and argument, as informed by interdisciplinary approaches to business management and organizational leadership.
  2.  Demonstrate advanced communication skills.
  3.  Recognize the need for information in professional and business contexts and to responsibly access, evaluate and apply information using a wide variety of research tools.
  4.  Develop strategies for organizational challenges using management theory, principles, ethical reasoning and innovative approaches.
