BBA degree requirements
Two options are available for online BBA students:
The Business Administration Comprehensive option is designed for students who are interested in developing a broad-based education of the business enterprise through advanced study in the business functional areas such as finance, management, marketing, and operations management.
The Business Administration Management Concentration option allows students to develop the critical, conceptual, and interpersonal skills that are essential to employment in management positions in all types of organizations.
Both options have the same requirements for the Foundation, College Core and Engaged Citizen Common Experience (ECCE). The difference is your preferred specialization in required courses and elective options. Please see the UIS Catalog for Business Administration degree requirements.
