Stillman School of Business

To attain the degree of Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, all students must satisfactorily complete liberal arts courses, both required and elective, business core courses, the requirements of their concentration and sufficient free electives to total 120 credits (121 credits for students concentrating in accounting and economics). The last 30 credits of the B.S. in Business Administration degree must be taken at the University.

To complete degree requirements satisfactorily, the student must have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0. Each concentration specifies the average required in concentration courses. Each student is advised by a faculty member in the area of major concentration. The ultimate responsibility for complying with curriculum requirements rests with the student. Choice of a program of study must be made before completion of 75 credits, but normally occurs by the end of the sophomore year.
