Bachelor of Science in Business Administration

The Bachelor of Science in Business Administration provides a solid foundation in business fundamentals along with a basic grounding in science. Core business competencies include accounting, economics, statistics, finance, business law, marketing, management, entrepreneurship, and leadership. Students also take a specialization that allows them to develop a depth of knowledge in a business field or another field of their choosing. Currently available business specializations are in applied economics, finance, and marketing, while specializations outside of business include applied math, architecture, construction management, logistics, and psychology, among others. In addition, the program's flexibility allows specializations to be created to meet a student's unique interests.
