Bachelor of Science in Business Administration - General Management

The Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) degree program in General Management is composed of a minimum of three of the four traditional areas of business: accounting, finance, management and marketing. The program is designed for students interested in having exposure to a number of business areas rather than focusing in depth on just one. All students must complete a capstone requirement, Strategic Management, which integrates content across the degree program and validates the students' knowledge. The degree is a 120-credit program.
