B.B.A. in General Business
The Bachelors of Business Administration in General Business (BBA-GB) is a specialty degree intended to accommodate students from very diverse educational backgrounds. More specifically, students from outside business with lots of non-business (up to 24-hours) university course credits can complete a degree with the BBA-GB and, in most cases, stay under the 120-hour degree plan and 150-hour financial aid limits.
If you have extensive Military, Technical, Vocational, or Work-related credits, see the Bachelor of Science in Applied Science or the Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences (BAAS).
Are you a first and second-year student wanting to study business but uncertain what degree to declare? Please see the section, For Uncertain 1st & 2nd Year Students below.
Designed with You in Mind
This degree works well for students who tried another discipline but find they need a change. In those instances, it maximizes the use of studies in the original field.
For Uncertain 1st & 2nd Year Students
So, you want to study business, but you’re not sure what major to declare? The easiest thing to do is download/print the Advising Guides for the B.B.A. Management and B.B.A. Marketing. Map the first two years of courses from one program to the other. You will find the first two years of the programs are more or less identical. That is because in Year-One, you are completing the University Core courses, and in Year-Two, you are completing what we call the B.B.A. Core – a group of foundation business courses all B.B.A. degrees require. One strategy would be to choose either management or marketing now. After experiencing the B.B.A. core courses in year two, change to the B.B.A. program that is most appealing and compatible with your personal goals.
