The BBA degree program goal is to develop in each student a broad understanding of how the elements and processes of business organizations relate to one another and to the external environment. Degree requirements are designed to develop proficiency and confidence in the functional areas of business. In addition to providing the technical skills required for a professional level business position, the ethical considerations of business are emphasized.

The BBA degree program affords students the opportunity to select an area of concentration in a discipline of their choice, to include:
Admission to Major in Business:
Students should apply to the major in Business Administration as soon as they are eligible to do so. To be eligible to apply for the major a student must have completed 32 semester hours as defined by University requirements and have at least a 2.0 grade point average. In addition, the student must have completed College Algebra (or a higher level mathematics course) with a grade of "C" or better.
In addition, students have the opportunity to complete a Minor in business administration, information systems, management, and marketing. Academic requirements for award of a concentration, and for award of a minor with a concentration, are defined on each concentrations page.
In determining whether students have satisfied the requirements for a concentration, or for a Minor, "double counting" a course to satisfy more than one requirement is not acceptable. A completed course may be credited once only. As an example, if a business student successfully completes BINT 3331: International Business Management, the student has satisfied a core requirement. The student may not credit BINT 3331 again to satisfy a 3000 level course requirement for his or her concentration.
To fulfill requirements for award of a BBA degree a student must complete:
