AdventHealth is a medical network of more than 80,000 skilled and compassionate caregivers in over 10 states that provides Andrews University students with opportunities for internships and residencies and ensures that University faculty are connected to the needs of the healthcare industry.

The School of Business Administration (SBA) traces its origin to 1908 as the Commercial Department of Emmanuel Missionary College. In 1952 all business instruction was organized into the Department of Business Administration. The first MBA candidates were admitted to the graduate program in 1964. The School of Business Administration was organized in July 1980, becoming the third professional school of the University. The school moved into its own building, Chan Shun Hall, in 1989, and currently has 181 students enrolled. The SBA philosophy states, “We are an engaged, values-based community of learners preparing students to transform their workplace.”
The SBA offers a robust undergraduate Bachelor of Business Administration program with majors in accounting, finance, information systems, international business, management and marketing; along with a Master of Business Administration with concentrations in accounting/finance and healthcare, and a general MBA. The MBA is offered both face-to-face and online. The latest addition is a PhD in business administration that will launch in August 2022 and will be the first and only PhD in business offered in Berrien County.
