What is Business Administration?
Business administrators are responsible for managing much of what goes on throughout a business. They may oversee the entire business, or they may specialize in a specific department, such as human resources or clerical departments. Their responsibilities will depend on the company they work for and how much of the company they are tasked with overseeing.
While it may seem glamorous to oversee an entire business, they must be ready to be involved with every department. They might discuss budget cuts with department heads, supervise the accounting manager and inspect financial statements and profit reports, or communicate the company needs with HR if the company plans to add a new department or downsize an existing one. They may also develop new procedures which are intended to boost efficiency, and they must ensure that effective leadership is consistently exercised while the organization works within state, local, and federal laws.
