BS in Business Administration with minor

The Bachelors of Science in Business Administration (B.S.B.A.) offers students a broad overview of business necessary to succeed within the industry. The B.S.B.A. requires a minor; we encourage students to consider the Interdisciplinary Studies minor as it allows for the choice of elective courses to improve a student's marketability. 

The program is offered in two formats to better suit the needs of our students. A student seeking a B.S.B.A. may complete the upper level coursework either online and/or in a face-to-face format. You will indicate the format you wish to pursue when you speak with your advisor.

The program is ideal for transfer students who have already completed their core education courses from regionally accredited colleges or recognized foreign universities and wish to pursue a broad-based business curriculum. Students may elect to complete their University Studies requirements here, but must be aware that we cannot guarantee all University Studies requirements to be online.
