Advisors: All full-time faculty in the department.

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 from business (BUS), finance (FIN), human resource management (HRM), management (MGT), marketing (MKT), management information systems (MIS), or operations and supply chain management (OSC) 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.

Students must apply and be accepted into the major prior to beginning 300- or 400-level business coursework.

The completed form must be accompanied by transcripts that reflect all prior college work. Admission shall be based on grades earned in the following courses:

Additional Admission Information


A cumulative grade point average of 2.5 in the above courses must be achieved with a minimum grade of “C-” (1.70) in each course. The credit/no credit option will not be accepted for any of these courses. The applicant must have completed ENG 101/102. These criteria apply to equivalent courses transferred from other institutions.

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. Students in a pre-major status who have not met all of the above requirements may enroll in a business core or specialization course only with permission of the college dean or designee.

Additional BSBA Graduation Requirements


The following special rules apply to students seeking the BSBA major:

  • Students must earn a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.25 in the 94-95 credit in-the-major coursework to be eligible for a degree. In addition, the Department requires a minimum GPA of 2.25 in the 59-60 credit upper-division component of the in-the-major total.
  • Students must complete a minimum of 90 quarter credits of non-business courses, which may include up to 13.5 quarter credits of economics and 9 quarter credits of business statistics (BUS 221, 321). For the purpose of this requirement, “non-business” courses include all EXCEPT FOR those with the prefix ACCT, BUS, ECON, FIN, HRM, MGT, MIS, MKT, or OSC.
  • Transfer students must complete at least 40 CWU business credits to be eligible for the business administration degree.
  • The BSBA program requires a single specialization of at least 25 credits. Occasionally a student requests a second specialization.
