The BBA also offers students the opportunity to complete elective courses in areas other than business administration – encouraging exposure to other disciplines.
The program consists of 120 credits. Students work asynchronously and in groups to complete assignments using online technologies.
Generally, students will receive advanced standing for all first year courses with the exception of statistics and management science. Some advanced standing will be provided for 2000 level courses.
