About This Major

Why This Major Is Relevant

With the aging of the Baby Boomer generation, a significant part of the U.S. labor force will be retiring over the next decade. As a result, businesses in both the public and private sectors are anticipating major staffing shortages. This presents an opportunity for business management majors to step up and fill in the gap.

APU’s business management degree uniquely positions graduates to take advantage of plentiful jobs, generous compensation, and opportunities for rapid advancement.

Gain In-depth Learning Experiences

APU business faculty remain connected to businesses in their areas of expertise and provide internship contacts for students. Additionally, the School of Business offers organizations such as Scholars for Business Achievement, which provides students with networking and experience, or Students in Free Enterprise, which allows students to use what they are learning in class to solve real-world business problems. These provide practical opportunities to apply classroom learning and ensure that business students graduate with significant experience on their résumés.
