Business Administration students at Morningside College enjoy a number of opportunities to expand their horizons with student organizations as well as by presenting research both on campus and beyond.
Faculty have worked with students to conduct and present research in many areas including the following:
- Management students analyzed human resource practices and current management issues.

The Business Administration program has several student groups on campus that allow students to meet with peers with similar interests and in many cases travel to conferences to further their knowledge on important topics. Listed are a few of the student groups and some experiences that Morningside students have taken advantage of.
