What Is the Difference Between Business Administration & Business Management?  
For someone interested in starting a small business or a small-business owner looking to become a better businessperson, a degree in business can be a great way to bolster the business owner's credentials or provide greater insight into business strategy and organization.  
Core Subjects
Both a business administration and a business management curriculum have various core classes that one must take in order to graduate. These courses tend to focus on a broad range of topics, including marketing, accounting, operations and finance. The purpose of the core courses is to give all ones, regardless of their intended area of specialization, a basic understanding of a wide range of useful skills.

Business Management
A degree in business management tends to focus on the more authoritative aspects of business. Ones learn how to plan business activities, organize departments and employees, run departments, and generally manage an organization. Ones also learn about the various important elements of running a business, such as logistics, business communications and leadership skills. 

The role of business administrators is primarily centered on carrying out the tasks and duties defined by management. Business administrators direct the flow of work that allows your company to operate effectively, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labour Statistics. Managers of administrative offices typically oversee billing and accounting departments, human resources, contract development and oversight, and records management. They may direct the flow of communications within and outside the company. Secretarial workers and administrative assistants provide support services for management as well.     
Management encompasses decision-makers who often run the company. The duties of the management team often involve organizing the operations and overseeing its continuity. Business management typically looks at the big picture to ensure the company remains profitable and may adjust administrative duties to reflect market changes, handle an increase in business or reduce the workforce when income decreases. Management usually defines company goals and prepares strategic plans for growth. They supervise department heads and often serve as the face of the company in public.

Business Administration
Business administration programs tend to be somewhat broader than business management programs, when there is any distinction at all. Ones tend to continue the broad approach to learning about business that was begun in the core. One may choose to focus on an area of particular interest such as accounting, finance or marketing, priming the one for a specific career area as opposed to a general management career.  
While in the past business administration and business management were separate fields of study, in recent years, they have come to be used interchangeably by many schools of business. In addition to these names, some programs have names such as Management and Organizational Studies, Management Studies, Business Studies or simply Business. While having different names, these programs are all essentially the same.
It's important to effectively define each job description in your company, according to the Small Business Administration. By clearly defining each employee's role, you can attract the best candidates for positions, measure progress and success and spell out the responsibilities that are expected in each job. While administration and management positions may overlap and share a number of responsibilities, there are clear differences.

Management Basics
Business management is a leadership role in an organization that includes employee motivation and supervision, monitoring of business activities, organizational communication, and direction and planning. Decision-making is a role often associated with a business manager. Other employees within the business typically look for the manager to provide vision, direction, and fair working conditions, and to instil a sense of purpose for business activities

Administrators are followers who take direction and oversee the flow of work. A business degree in business administration concentrates on the practical side of business and how to employ various strategies to fulfill their mandates. Business administrators often study and gain proficiencies in economics, finance and accounting. They are trained in organizational behaviour, ethics and human resource allocation. Administrators may specialize in marketing, law or information systems.  
A degree in business management prepares ones to take leadership roles in business. Skills required by a management professional include team building and consensus building among employees. They must be able to delegate effectively while directing workers to follow a strategic plan. Management typically stays on top of external political and economic issues that affect the business. They make decisions and goals and provide the drive and cultural environment under which the company operates.

Project Management and Business Administration and BA Management     
What is Project Management?

More specifically, what is a project? It's a temporary endeavour undertaken to create a unique product, service or result.  A project is temporary in that it has a defined beginning and end in time, and therefore defined scope and resources.  And a project is unique in that it is not a routine operation, but a specific set of operations designed to accomplish a singular goal. So a project team often includes people who don’t usually work together – sometimes from different organizations and across multiple geographies.  The development of software for an improved business process, the construction of a building or bridge, the relief effort after a natural disaster, the expansion of sales into a new geographic market — all are projects.

And all must be expertly managed to deliver the on-time, on-budget results, learning and integration that organizations need.  Project management, then, is the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activities to meet the project requirements.  It has always been practiced informally, but began to emerge as a distinct profession in the mid-20th century. PMI’s A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) identifies its recurring elements:
Project management processes fall into five groups:
  • Initiating     
  • Planning     
  • Executing     
  • Monitoring and Controlling     
  • Closing
Project management knowledge draws on ten areas:
  • Integration     
  • Scope     
  • Time     
  • Cost     
  • Quality     
  • Human resources     
  • Communications     
  • Procurement     
  • Risk management     
  • Stakeholders 

Definition of project management

Project management is the discipline of initiating, planning, executing, controlling, and closing the work of a team to achieve specific goals and meet specific success criteria. A project is a temporary endeavour designed to produce a unique product, service or result with a defined beginning and end (usually time-constrained, and often constrained by funding or deliverables) undertaken to meet unique goals and objectives, typically to bring about beneficial change or added value.[1][2] The temporary nature of projects stands in contrast with  which are repetitive, permanent, or semi-permanent functional activities to produce products or services. In practice, the management of these two systems is often quite different, and as such requires the development of distinct technical skills and management strategies.
The primary challenge of project management is to achieve all of the project goals and constraints These information are usually described in a user or project manual, which is created at the beginning of the development. The primary constraints of many things]. The secondary — and more ambitious — challenge is to optimize the allocation of necessary inputs and integrate them to meet pre-defined 

Business Operation:
The outcome of Business operations is the harvesting of value from assets owned by a business. Assets can be either physical or intangible. An example of value derived from a physical asset, like a building, is rent. An example of value derived from an intangible asset, like an idea, is a royalty. The effort involved in "harvesting" this value is what constitutes business operations cycles.
