Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA)

The BBA degree offers general management preparation with an opportunity for specialization in a specific field of business.

It represents a careful balance of structure and choice, with flexibility that allows students to tailor their programs to reflect the individual career goals they have selected. While each student takes the same business core classes, many of the general education courses and courses in the field of concentration are individually selected to suit each student.

Curriculum Information

For students who entered GWSB beginning Fall 2014 and forward:

BBA Concentration Options 

Students pursuing a BBA degree must pursue one or two concentrations. Students must declare their concentration(s) and minor outside of GWSB by the end of their sophomore year. 

Required Non-GWSB Minor 

The BBA degree requires students to declare a minor outside of GWSB; regardless if the student has one or two concentrations. Students should consult with the department in which the minor is housed to learn more about minor course requirements and/or review the University Bulletin. Students must declare their minor by the end of their sophomore year and work with a GWSB advisor to determine how the minor fits into their academic plan. The student's primary minor outside of GWSB must have four unique courses that are not applying to any other degree requirements.
