Business Administration (BSBA)

Bachelor's Degree Programs

Bachelor of Science in Business Administration

The BSBA was developed to afford busy adults a degree option that would recognize the full range of their abilities in a convenient and flexible format. In addition to completing the general curriculum core, all BSBA candidates must complete a business core and a concentration in either accountancy, management or healthcare management.

In addition to the core curriculum requirements, BSBA students must complete the business core courses and concentration courses as detailed on the following pages.
