An Administration Degree Can Take the Risk Out of a New Business

Starting a Business Is Very Challenging in the Best of Times and in a Down Economy One Must Be Even More Prepared and Focused

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - August 19, 2009) - Students who graduate with an administration degree can work in a wide variety of businesses and non-profits from Fortune 500 companies to start ups, small businesses, local charities plus everything in between. As successful executives, managers, business owners and entrepreneurs have discovered, there is no better way to advance in a career or find a job than getting a well rounded business education.

There is nothing more exciting than starting a business. However, this choice is fraught with obstacles and failure. According to the Small Business Administration (SBA) "The number of non-employer firms has risen steadily in this decade, from 16.5 million in 2000 to an estimated 21.1 million in 2007. An estimated 637,100 new employer firms began operations in 2007 and 560,300 firms closed that year."

With over half a million employer firms closing each year, learning how to start and manage a business is a vital necessity. Thus, a college degree that covered human resources, marketing, sales, accounting, budgeting, production planning, quality control and public relations would round out a curriculum that needs to be studied and applied. With a solid education and practical experience as in apprenticeships or internships the odds would be markedly shifted for a start up to succeed.

The Hubbard College of Administration's (HCA) Applied Science Degree of Management and Administration gives students from around the world the opportunity to attend a business school that has both the administration theory and a unique internship after each module. In this way the students get realistic experience so treasured by employers. At HCA, students must demonstrate that they can apply what they have learned in class before they graduate.

"The major reason for this significant business failure is bad or no management," said HCA Deputy Executive Director, Nick Terrenzi. "People starting a new business may be great in their profession, but struggle with the basics of administration and people management. Our associate degree program gives them the practical business skills that they need to succeed."
