Business Administration BS (BSBA), Leadership and Management Specialization


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degrees Offered (Majors, Minors, listed by degree)

The leadership and management specialization emphasizes building the skills, insights and knowledge that professionals need to succeed in a business context. Students will improve their ability to manage themselves as well as influence others as they learn to identify valuable goals and work to reach them. Courses will feature relevant concepts and theories and present opportunities to deploy this knowledge in practical situations to build a solid foundation of leadership and management ability. The program is designed to give students a portfolio of established and cutting-edge principles to draw from over their career.

The business administration major requires a single specialization of at least 24 credits. Occasionally a student requests a second specialization. To be eligible for a second specialization, a minimum of 20 unique credits must be completed. Unique in this sense means the credits have not been used as part of any other business administration specialization. Students cannot double specialize in general business and another business administration specialization.

Admission Requirements
Students can apply to the major as part of their application to CWU, via their MyCWU account, or by emailing CBAdvising@cwu.edu and will be approved for entry to the major once they have completed the College of Business Agreement to Policies.
