Every type and size of business needs competent employees who can handle day-to-day operations. With the Southern Careers Institute Business Administration program, employment opportunities are limitless.
What Jobs are in Business Administration?
Business administration training gives students extensive knowledge and office skills. These skills prepare them for a variety of administrative roles. For example, clerks, aides, coordinators, and office specialists all deal with business administration.
It is also important to note that business administration jobs exist in almost any industry. Therefore, you can choose exactly where you want to work.
Some of the most popular fields for graduates include Accounting, Banking, Insurance, E-Commerce, Real Estate, Sales, Manufacturing, Marketing, Healthcare, Retail, Property Management, and E-Business. Likewise, universities, Non-Profits, and Governmental offices are also potential employers.
Those with business administration training qualify for the following jobs:
Business Administration Work Environment
The work environment for business administration can vary depending on the field. For those just starting out, a large office with many employees is not uncommon. On the other hand, or smaller businesses with fewer employees, the office space may be shared with others.
Generally, business administration jobs revolve around a 9 am to 5 pm work schedule; but again, this may differ depending on the situation. It’s also important to recognize that office workers often sit at a desk for most of the day.
This means many of the duties are done while working on a computer. Therefore, you should be comfortable with an office setting and being able to complete tasks online.
Business administration jobs generally involve:
Handling incoming and outgoing mail and email
Arranging staff meetings
Preparing memos, invoices, and reports
Maintaining information using software and spreadsheets
Maintaining databases and filing systems
Human resources tasks like interviewing, orientation, and processing of paperwork
Furthermore, business office employees must have excellent verbal and written communication skills. They should also be comfortable with multi-tasking.
Business Administration Salary and Job Outlook
With so many business tasks being computerized today, the job outlook remains very good. Additionally, those who have certifications in software remain ahead of the curve. For example, some of these certifications include QuickBooks and Microsoft Office.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average expected salary for entry-level business employees falls at $15 to $20 per hour. On the other hand, middle to senior-level employees earn within the range of$45,000 to $55, 000 per year.

“When my youngest child graduated from high school, I told my husband that it was my time. I went back to school to change careers after spending 37 years in the business field. At SCI, the instructors are professional, and they care about what they are teaching you, as well as expect you to give 100% in return. I had problems understanding how to draw in syringes and give injections. I requested extra help from a knowledgeable instructor, and I was able to receive one-on-one training. Today, I draw injections for approximately 100 patients each week. I am very confident in what I’ve learned. SCI has given me the chance to do what I always wanted to do. Thank you for my education. I am doing wonderful.”
