Business Administration is one of several Business and Public Policy area degrees offered at YHC. Whereas many institutions have business programs, Young Harris has a department of Business and Public Policy. First conceived by YHC alum and former GA Governor Zell Miller, Business and Public Policy (BUSP) trains the businessman how to run a business in a world constrained by policy and teaches the policy maker how to make policies which take the business world into consideration.
