In the Classroom
In class no longer means having to be on campus sitting in a classroom. We offer classes during the day, evening, in a hybrid format and also have a 100% online business program. The BBA program offers you the flexibility to take classes on or off campus. While you are sitting in a classroom or sitting at your computer our faculty will supply you with business theory and allow you to apply those theories throughout the program. While students complete Pre-Business, Core Business, and Major Business courses, they will develop better communication skills, critical thinking skills, the ability to work effectively in groups, and master discipline specific knowledge such as accounting, finance, management, quantitative methods and more. The skills developed in the classroom are the skills employees are looking for in the next generation of leaders.
Outside the Classroom
While students learn a lot in the classroom, the value of engagement outside the classroom is just as important. BBA students have opportunities to participate in study abroad trips, exchange programs, entrepreneurship competitions, internships, student organizations and much more. Opportunities are available to those on campus and online.
The BBA program consists of 120 credit hours (minimum) of undergraduate coursework, including general education, pre-business core, business core, and major courses.
All undergraduate business students must declare and fulfill the requirements for a major in at least one of the following areas: Accounting, Finance, General Business, International Business, Organizational Behavior and Human Resources Management, Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management, Operations and Supply Chain Management, or Marketing. The majors in the BBA program are developed around market needs and faculty expertise and allow you to focus your studies and develop skills in an area of business consistent with your career objectives.
Career Development Requirement
In the fall of 2019, all first time enrolled students in the School of Management will be required all to participate in career development activities to enhance their employability skills.

The School of Management honors program offers students of superior ability and demonstrated achievement an opportunity to broaden and enrich their management education. Supplementing and paralleling the regular curriculum, it encourages greater depth and breadth in regular courses and offers independent study and research. The program includes an opportunity for off-campus study and an honors thesis. Upon completion of the program, students are named a School of Management honor program scholar, which is denoted on their transcript and diploma.
Admission to the honors program is by invitation only. Selection is made on the basis of performance in the freshman/sophomore honors program. A student may also be admitted after establishing a record of superior performance in the regular program. All students in good standing in the program receive financial aid.
