Public Administration Concentration

Earning a business degree with a concentration in public administration can be a useful academic background for students pursing a career in government or not-for-profit organizations. 

Additionally, Olivet offers students the opportunity to attend a Federal Seminar in Washington, D.C., every year.

Field Experience

Each year the McGraw School of Business helps sponsor and leads 15 students to attend the Annual National Evangelical Association Student Leadership Conference held in Washington, D.C., in January. The focus of the conference is to challenge students to become knowledgeable and active in the local, state and federal governmental issues of the day. Along with touring the capital city, students are challenged by national policy makers and drivers of the culture, with guest speakers from the House of Representatives, Senators, Supreme Court Justices and representatives from the White House. Discussion topics center on current issues such as commerce, freedom of religion, and the greater impact of the Church around the world.
