Business Administration involves the performance and management of the tasks operating in a business, as well as making decisions to see that the organisation is directed towards the common goals and objectives. The five functions of management are Planning, Organising, Commanding, Coordinating, and Controlling.

Business Administrators play a very responsible and important role in the team, as they are the ones that focus on the success and profit of a business. They have to properly monitor the order, efficiency, and productivity of a business. Hence, the overall daily responsibility of a business administrator is to ensure that the goals and profits of an organisation are met accordingly.

Business Administration is highly inter-disciplinary since it combines knowledge from several disciplines like Economics, Finance, Marketing, Accounts, and Human Resource Management to name a few. Students pursuing a Master in Business Administration (MBA) degree develop useful skills needed for selling products, improving the financial status of a company, looking after the needs of employees, and many more such functions. MBA degrees are postgraduate degrees that usually require work experience for admissions.
