Bachelor of Business Administration

The Bachelor of Business Administration degree is accredited by the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education.

The major in business administration is the most flexible program offered within the business division. Students may choose their required electives from accounting, business, economics, management or marketing. This allows a student, with the help of an adviser, to design a program to prepare for a career in business, industry or government. The major also provides a sound foundation for those going on to graduate school in one of the business areas.

Business administration students focus on general skills which make them flexible practitioners in the job market. Students in this major should emphasize one of the functional areas of business. The specific outcome objectives are then the same as in the functional areas of Accounting, Marketing, Management, and Economics/Finance.

The student must complete the major with a minimum of a 2.25 cumulative grade-point average in courses applied to the major. Any specific business course completed by the student outside of the business core may not be counted toward more than one business major or minor.
