Take a look at some of the featured departments here at Monmouth.

Business Administration

Students will learn to understand spreadsheet analysis, the operation of markets, the basic concepts of marketing and the essentials of management, in order to function effectively in the global economy. The differences between traditional business programs and Monmouth’s approach are dramatic. The focus is long-term rather than short-run.
