What's The Difference Between Business Administration And Business Management? by Commmy: 5:18pm On Dec 21, 2019
Hi Nairalanders...

Compliments of the season!!!

My younger sister wants to study BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION and her choice of school is Uniport.
A quick check at the website of the school shows Uniport doesn't offer BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION instead it's BUSINESS MANAGEMENT under faculty of management science.

So I want to know the difference between both degrees and which of them offers better opportunities?

Should she fill another school or go for the management course at Uniport?

They mean the same thing basically, adminstration and management are used interchangeably!

i put it to you that both are not absolutely the same thing.
Business Management degree equip graduates with policy making, building systems, process and other guidelines. for which the Business administrator then use that guidance to run the operation. Management is non linear as it deals with people, profit, innovation, competition, entrepreneurship and organizational systems.

Business administration is kind of streamlined, students are thought on how to take care of the administrative tasks, business administration functions is linear in nature. Hence, bureaucratic in outlook. It is concerned with things being done the way they ought to be done.

conclusion:
Administration is a subset of Management
your sister will sure b lucky if she could get Management, (i am not saying one is better than the other tho, but from the foregoing one will see that its self evident that one is more sophisticated than the other)
i studied Business Administration in the polytechnic, and i am currently in my penultimate studying Management in University of Nigeria
best of Luck to your sister.

Thanks for your detailed response. I get your point very well.

But in the Labour market is there any significant distinction between both degrees? like Business administrators being restricted to certain job opportunities that are meant solely for Business managers?

Also, success in your studies!!!

basically, Human Resources managers knows the intricacies inherent in every course of study. if employer of labour wants a person who would carry out a more linear role in their entity they know which is best, and if they would prefer a non linear role they still know which course is best.
"Administration is a subset of Management" this further defines how rigorous and sophisticated one is over the other

i think the foregoing was able to give answer to your question
compliments of the Season

well to me, administration has to do policy formulation while management has to do with getting things done through people. so I could say, business administration is the formulation or regulation of policies, rules and regulation guiding business while business management has to do harnessing both human and material resources to achieve business objectives.
