BS in Business Administration

General

Programme Description

Designed for the adult undergraduate student, this program combines practical career experience to business and management theory.

This program has a particular emphasis on technical and quantitative skills in addition to management science and provides an effective balance of theory and practical application. The curriculum is designed to enable students to work effectively in a business environment that has become increasingly more complex. Students immediately use on-the-job skills they learn in the classroom.

The core curriculum is structured sequentially, with students taking one course at a time. Courses involve four-hour class sessions once a week, usually for five weeks. Participants also form study groups made up of three to five students who meet outside of class for four hours on a weekly basis to work on assigned individual and group projects. At the end of the course sequence, students are required to complete a capstone course that integrates material from all of the previous coursework through a focus on strategic management and includes the completion of a major paper addressing an issue, problem, or concern in the student’s work environment.
