Business Administration Degree Program

Reflecting the Meinders School’s broad view of business administration, the business administration major allows the student to tailor the course work to suit her or his particular interests and professional objectives. 

Students choose a first and second field from the fields available and listed below, then select three courses in the first field and two courses in the second field. Six additional 3000-level or above business school credit hours are then chosen to complete the major. Courses in some fields must be taken in the proper sequence, and students must meet stated course prerequisites.
