Major components of the program are designed to provide solid foundations in the liberal arts, broad general business concepts and specialized majors.

Any entering or transfer student planning to pursue business administration as a program will be admitted to the pre-business program and will work with a business advisor in the development of a planned program. Intellectual skills development program testing is required by the University to determine placement in reading, writing and skills development courses. If remedial work is required, those hours are in addition to the 122 hours required of the B.B.A. degree. Testing is completed at orientation or individually for new transfer students. Complete catalog year information is available at
