Business Administration (B.S.)

The Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration (BSBA; formerly Business and Information Technology), offered through the School of Business, provides students with a traditional foundation in business using a balanced theoretical and practical approach.  It is designed to prepare students to quickly become productive members in their chosen fields while also preparing them to challenge the status quo and navigate organizations through future challenges. 

The curriculum is designed to provide students with a strong balance of business, organizational, interpersonal, and technical skills. Students in the degree program take core courses in business and then select a concentration (or dual concentrations) from among accounting, general business, marketing, and management.

Curriculum for Bachelor of Science in Business Administration

The Business Administration degree requires 60 credit hours beyond the associate degree or its equivalent. A grade of at least a "C" is required in all 3000-4000 level courses used to meet the Business Administration degree requirements.
