  • The BSBA program requires a single specialization of at least 25 credits. Occasionally a student requests a second specialization.

General Business Specialization


 This specialization is intended for the student who wishes to tailor a “unique” set of specialization courses to his or her needs or for the student who desires a broad-based “generalist” track within the business administration major. Twenty-five upper division elective credits are required including at least 20 credits must be business (BUS), finance (FIN), human resource management (HRM), management (MGT), marketing (MKT), management information systems (MIS), or supply chain management (SCM) courses. The remaining five credits may be accounting (ACCT) or economics (ECON). The student is limited to 10 credits from any one area and the specialization must include at least 10 credits of 400-level courses, which cannot include BUS 490 as any of the 10 credits at the 400-level. No more than 5 credits of the specialization may be BUS 490.
