Business Administration
Specialized Area of Study in Therapeutic Horsemanship Business Management

"At St. Andrews, I was attracted to the Therapeutic Horsemanship (TH) program because it combines the best of both worlds, getting to work with horses daily and work with children. The reason I also chose to pursue the business field is because I quickly realized that if I wanted to run my own center I would need some basic knowledge as well as the ability to apply it to the equestrian industry."

-Courtney Bertram '10

"The equestrian program attracted me to St. Andrews, and I have luckily landed in a career where I have been able to combine my passion with my education. St. Andrews not only provided a good, solid business background, but also taught me how to be an independent thinker, both of which have served me very well throughout my career."
