The business administration degree program at OSU-Cascades offers a student-centered learning environment that provides students with the professional preparation necessary for successful careers in the highly competitive global business environment.

The curriculum, unique to OSU-Cascades, is designed to provide students with a well-rounded business perspective. At OSU-Cascades, students do not specialize in one specific business discipline (e.g., finance, marketing, management). Students instead take multiple upper division courses in several business disciplines so that upon graduation they have a holistic business perspective, which is especially important in smaller and entrepreneurial organizational environments.

Emphasis throughout the curriculum is placed not only upon the concepts and analytical techniques of business decision-making, but also upon the obligations and opportunities of businesses to be socially responsible.
