Although the terms ‘Administration’ and ‘Management’ may appear to be similar, they are actually different. In our daily conversation we use the two terms interchangeably. Administration is concerned with laying down suitable policies for the whole concern whereas management will simply execute these.
Administrators are the owners of the business.

Managers, on the other hand, are the salaried employees of the concern. The basic difference between administration and management is given below.

All policy decisions are made by the administration.
It is concerned with the implementation of the policies. Certain routine decisions may be made by the managers on less important matters.
Administrators are the owners of the concern.
Managers are the paid employees of the concern.
Administration is basically interested in results, i.e., profitability, sales, future prospects and so on.
Managers actually work for the remuneration they get. They direct their efforts towards the attainment of the goal set by the administration.
Administrators do not take part in the daily activities of the concern.
The managers are responsible to the administrators on the daily work done in the concern.

are influenced by the availability of capital,
Government regulations and such other factors.
