  What is a Business Professional?      
  At the University of Virginia, a Business Professional is an administrative employee charged with duties ranging from budget to student system activity. They may be responsible for financial information, such as accounting records, grants and contracts, and procurements, or staffing concerns, such as hiring and timekeeping. Although the tasks specific to each Business Professional may be different, some things are always the same.

  All Business Professionals should:
  • seek training and professional development pertinent to their positions
  • attend the University business meetings relevant to their work
