Business Administration (BSBA)

Our BSBA Major in Business Administration Program

A degree in Business Administration provides students with the knowledge base and functional skills required to meet the varied and complex responsibilities faced by managers in businesses, governments, not-for-profits, and other organizations.

Students complete a set of business core courses which encompass all of the major functional areas essential to the successful operation of any organization. This ensures that graduates are prepared to enter a variety of positions upon graduation. Students must also take at least four advanced business electives beyond the business core: these may be used to expand the breadth of their knowledge in several subject areas or to increase their depth of understanding in one area. At least one of the four electives must be chosen from International Business.

A wide range of opportunities exist for business majors upon graduation. Large corporations, small or family-held businesses, not-for-profit organizations and government agencies all have need for the skills and knowledge possessed by a business administration major. Participation in co-op often helps students to narrow their career focus to a specific occupation, firm, or industry.

The College reserves the right to add or delete course offerings and to redesign the program.

All 3000 and 4000 level ACC and BUS courses (excluding BUS 4990 which is a required course) can be used to fulfill these electives. Students should review the catalog listings of courses and talk with their academic advisor. Students can customize their selection.

We also offer courses in Sustainable Development, eBusiness, and Investments. Students may also take advantage of our International Studies in Business course which includes a study abroad component. Early planning provides the greatest opportunity. Visit the course descriptions for ACC and BUS courses.

    Experiential Education

    Students in the four-year business administration program may participate in an experiential education program by completing internship or co-operative education assignments. These are generally completed during the summers after the junior and senior years. A mentor from the voluntary alumni mentoring program will assist and guide each student in career planning and development. This mentoring will supplement the academic advising provided by the College of Business Administration and the many services provided by the University's Career Education Center. In recent assignments, students have worked with American Axle, BCBS of Michigan, Chrysler, DTE, Ford, General Motors, Merrill Lynch, O'Keefe & Associates, Quicken Loans, State Farm, Talmer Bank, and other firms.
