Business Administration

The BSBA degree is conferred upon regular students who complete a minimum of 120 semester hours, residency requirements, and all specific degree requirements listed below.

Majors

Each business student must choose a major area of specialization. The accounting, finance, human resource management, management, marketing, and social entrepreneurship majors each require six courses (18 sh). The interdisciplinary major requires nine courses (27 sh), reducing the general electives available.

Specific requirements for individual majors are listed under each discipline. All courses in the major must be passed with grades of C- or higher (with a minimum average of 2.00). Each major has additional course(s) which require a grade of C- or higher.

Interdisciplinary major

Students whose career interests span two or more traditional business areas may complete an interdisciplinary major. This major includes nine courses of which at least five must be in a single functional area (accounting, finance, human resource management, management, or marketing). In the past, students have combined such areas as accounting and finance and marketing and finance. This major must be approved by the assistant dean for undergraduate business studies.

Specialized business minors

Students may also complete a specialized business minor in an area outside the major. The requirements are four courses in one area at the 300 level without overlap with the major requirements. At least three of the courses must be taken at Roosevelt University, and all courses must be passed with grades of C- or higher. Students must complete all prerequisites for courses in their chosen minor area.

The specialized minors are also open to prepared students outside of the College of Business.
