Business Administration, B.S.

The Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (B.S.B.A.) program prepares aspiring business leaders for success in an evolving, uncertain, and dynamic business environment. Our curriculum is driven by the concept that technology is transformational, the business world is globalized, and both qualities jointly impact the ability of those with entrepreneurial inclinations to create and implement new, innovative business models. Such emphasis ensures that graduates are ready to add value and change the face of the business landscape when they enter the workforce.

In addition to program curriculum requirements, all students must satisfy the professional enrichment, experiential education, and community impact components of the BUSI 495 course in the core. Students should consult with their academic advisor to better understand these platforms. All students must also register for and complete BUSI 100 School of Management orientation during their first semester of study. This zero-credit-hour requirement ensures that all students are familiarized with the school's processes, requirements, and other orientation-specific items that lead to student success. The course, offered as pass/fail, must be completed in partial fulfillment of B.S.B.A. requirements and cannot be waived.

Program Features

  • Significant elements of globalization and its impact on business is part of the business core through International Business (MGMT 235). Additionally, this is addressed in each concentration, where a domain-specific, global-intensive course is required, and also in each course, where the Master Syllabus contains a contextualized learning goal and student-learning outcome that speaks to either the impact that globalization has had on business within the context of the course or specific localized elements of the course relevant to the community.
  • The completion of a capstone course in the business program core. The B.S.B.A. program core capstone course (BUSI 435) unifies much of the educational experience and ensures domain integration across the functional areas of business.
  • The learning goals of the school's academic programs, concentrations, and courses are grounded in Bloom's taxonomy, an established best practice in pedagogy. In this way, the school ensures that students not only gain knowledge and develop understanding, but are able to apply this knowledge, conduct relevant analysis, synthesize multiple domains and information, and evaluate alternatives in support of effective decision making.
  • All students are required to participate in the Career Building Platform, encompassing Professional Enrichment, Experiential Education, and Community Impact programs. These co-curricular platforms guarantee students exposure to professionals through seminars and workshops, hands-on learning through mandatory educational experiences that apply classroom knowledge to real-world scenarios, and active engagement with peers, faculty, community members, and professionals. These enriching, co-curricular activities are offered over the course of a student's time on campus and are tracked throughout this time. In the final semester, students register for the BUSI 495 Career Building Platform course to review their participation.

B.S.B.A. Programmatic Learning Goals

Upon graduation from the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration program, students demonstrate attainment of programmatic learning goals. The degree of attainment realized is a shared and collaborative responsibility that engages students, faculty, staff, and other stakeholder groups, working together to maximize students' opportunities to be successful.

Programmatic learning goals are partitioned into two categories: general learning goals, and management-specific learning goals. The former are considered transferable and have relevancy across all disciplines of study, both in business and outside of business. These goals are also in support of the general education learning goals. The latter, which are management-specific, speak to those issues that impact success in the business environment.
