What is Administration?

Administration is a professional discipline that applies scientific and mathematical approaches to operational processes and managerial decisions of organizations. This discipline combines both quantitative methods such as probabilistic analysis, statistical inference, optimization, mathematical models, and programming, as well as qualitative methodologies such as communication, organizational behavior, and psychology. Administration is used virtually in all areas of business, industry, and government, for example:

  • Financial Services
  • Marketing and Sales
  • Operations
  • Manufacturing, engineering, and high technology
  • Transportation Systems
  • Service Industries such as Health and Insurance
  • Strategic consulting

As a science, Administration focuses on the design and management of complex systems, and is used to investigate a broad range of strategic and logistical problems. For example, a financial analyst, an organizational leader, and a marketing manager may apply financial management techniques to answer the following questions:

  • What is the best investment portfolio for a client who wants to retire within 15 years?
  • What managerial decisions generate value for the organization beyond profits?
  • What is the optimal cost/benefit combination of various product lines?

These are multifaceted and complex problems that involve an element of risk. The discipline of Administration provides a systematic approach to solving them using quantitative and qualitative techniques that analyze the human and social dimensions involved. Administrative solutions take into account the complexity of the real world and the constraints and effort required to find viable, sustainable, and responsible solutions with substantial resource savings.
