Bachelor of Science in Business Administration Program
The Department of Finance and SCM and the Department of Management jointly support the bachelor of science in business administration-general business specialization and business minor. The department offers coursework leading to the bachelor of science in business administration (BSBA) degree. In addition to the university general education requirements, the BSBA major is comprised of three principal components:

  • Pre-admission courses that provide foundation knowledge and skills needed for further study in business
  • Business core courses that build on the pre-admission group and focus on decision making in the main functional areas of business
  • Specialization courses that allow for advanced study in one of the functional areas.

Students matriculating in Ellensburg select a 25-credit specialization within the BSBA program in one of six areas: finance, general business, human resource management, leadership and management, marketing management, or supply chain management. Students matriculating at a university center choose from general business, human resource management, leadership and management, marketing management or supply chain management.

Program Goals for BSBA
The departments have identified overall educational outcomes related to knowledge, values, and skills for all BSBA graduates. Following are the outcomes for the bachelor of science in business administration (BSBA) programs:

1.  Knowledge-based educational outcomes. Upon completion of the BSBA program, students should:

  • Have a working knowledge of business administration that will aid them in private, government, or non-profit careers and/or prepare them for additional study


2.  Values-based educational outcomes. Upon completion of the BSBA program, students should:

  • Comprehend ethical issues and be able to apply an ethical decision-making framework to business decisions


3.  Skills-based educational outcomes. Upon completion of the BSBA program, students should:

  • Function effectively when in teams both as a leader and as a member
  • Demonstrate effective oral communication skills
  • Demonstrate effective written communication skills
  • Apply quantitative and qualitative critical thinking skills to develop, access, and use information to analyze business problems and propose feasible solutions

Admission Requirements
Admission requirements to major programs within the College of Business are identical regardless of the location of the program. Students must first be accepted by the university and, if applicable, the university center which they plan to attend. Then, students must formally apply to the College of Business and be admitted to a College of Business Program prior to enrolling in 300- and 400-level courses within the college.

Students must attend a College of Business major orientation to be fully admitted to our majors. Applications are only accepted at new student orientations. The application form must be completed and returned to the appropriate office along with copies of current transcripts.

If a student has met the requirements of admission but has struggled to do so, the College of Business reserves the right to offer conditional admission status for up to 2 quarters and/or 30 credits in order for the student to demonstrate she/he will be successful. Final admission to the College of Business under these circumstances is not guaranteed.

Students must have the below requirements to be admitted  to a College of Business major. Students seeking entry to the College without these requirements will be granted pre-major standing.

  • Completion of 30 credits (If a student is a transfer student, credits must be transferable)
  • The applicant must be in good academic standing
  • 2.25 Collegiate GPA
  • Completion of ENG 101 and ENG 102 with a C- or higher, or equivalent
  • Attend a College of Business Orientation

International students whose native language is not English must meet one of the following English proficiency requirements:

  • A score of 71 or above on the Internet-based TOEFL or 525 or above on the paper-based TOEFL (195 for computer based, 71 for internet based), OR
  • A score of 6.0 or above on the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) exam, OR
  • A 3.0 (B grade) or above in each two college-level English composition courses from an accredited United States college or university. Contact the Office of Admissions to find out what courses are acceptable.

Students who have met all of the above requirements will be admitted unless the number of applicants exceeds available space. In that case, acceptance will be competitive, based on a selection index.

Previous or Transfer Coursework Policy
Business courses taken to fulfill the requirements for an undergraduate or graduate degree from the CWU College of Business must have been taken within the last 10 years at the time of graduation. Exceptions may be made, but must be approved prior to acceptance into the College of Business by the department chair and dean or designee.

Students wishing to have credits from non-United States institutions considered for transfer into the College of Business for any major or minor must have their transcripts evaluated through outside credential evaluators who are members of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES), such as the Foundation for International Services (FIS), the World Education Service (WES), or Educational Perspectives. Students who intend to pursue the CPA may instead decide to use the NABSA (National Association of State Boards of Accountancy) international evaluation services since it is a requirement of the CPA. Credits for current students participating in a CWU study abroad program will be evaluated by the Office of the Registrar.

Equivalent lower-division (100-200 level) courses may be transferred toward meeting the foundation course requirements for any BS degree in the college. Upper-division (300-400 level) courses may be transferred toward meeting the major requirements only with the approval of the department chair and the college dean (or designee).
