Program Description

These bachelor- and associate- level degree programs are specifically designed for highly motivated, non-traditional students.  Our students may be working adults who have acquired learning through career experiences, professional or military schools, college or university courses, and in-service training; they may also be students of a more traditional age who are simply interested in completing their degree requirements in a manner that accommodates their work and family obligations.

The Bachelor of Business Administration degree program has been established with two entry points. Students who have completed the equivalent of a freshman and sophomore year (approximately 60 credits) enter the BBA Core, a 60-credit course sequence that includes junior- and senior-level courses.  The BBA Core is offered in three formats: an on-campus day program, and on-campus evening program, and an online program.

DELIVERY FORMATS

  • On-campus evening students are enrolled in one four-credit, seven-week course at a time. 
  • On-campus day students may enroll in up to four four-credit courses during each fourteen-week semester. An online capstone course is spread across three semesters and may be taken consecutively with four on-campus courses. If students desire to work at this pace, they can complete the requirements for a BBA in under one year.  
  • Online students take one-course at a time; each course is seven weeks in length. Online instructional methods include mini-lectures, discussion boards, case studies, group projects, virtual labs, and simulations.  Each four-credit course is a required component of the program.

The A.S. in Business can be used to earn an associate’s degree or simply to accumulate sufficient credits to transfer into a baccalaureate-level program, depending on the student’s educational goals.

Program Goals

The Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) is designed to include courses in all the functional areas of business, management, and leadership. Students earn a degree that relates business theory to business practice, applying classroom concepts to real world situations. The goals of the program include:

1.      To provide a relevant and innovative business education which prepares individuals for professional careers and lifelong learning.

2.      To develop in all students the interpersonal skills necessary for effective participation in teams and groups.

3.      To enhance the analytical, critical thinking, and decision-making skills of each individual student.

4.      To develop and cultivate a sense of purpose, responsibility, and ethical behavior among individuals.

5.      To enhance the student’s written and spoken communication skills.

6.      To develop proficiency in the application of computer technologies.
