BBA Curriculum

Whether you are interested in entering the corporate world or starting your own business, we have a program flexible enough to serve your needs. Our students are challenged to recognize and define complex business problems, explore alternatives, and effectively communicate successful solutions.

The BBA program is organized into five sections: BBA Program Prerequisites, General Education Distribution, BBA Core, Majors, and Electives.

This information affects students admitted to the pre-business program Fall 2014 and later. If you are a current BBA student, you should continue to follow your current program requirements. If you are a current pre-business student, contact an academic advisor to discuss your options.
