The Bachelor of Business Administration 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 basic business core classes, many of the general education courses and courses in the field of concentration are individually selected to suit each student.
For students who entered GWSB between Fall 2009 – Summer 2014:
Students who entered GW prior to Fall 2009 should contact their GWSB advisor in order to obtain accurate curriculum requirements.
BBA Concentration Options
Students pursuing a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree must pursue one area of concentration; they also have the option of pursuing a second concentration. The concentration courses are typically completed during the junior and senior years. Students need to declare their concentration(s) by the end of their sophomore year by consulting with a GWSB advisor.
The BBA degree also allows students to choose a minor outside of the School of Business; BBA students entering Fall 2014 or later are required to complete a minor outside of the School of Business. Students should consult with the department in which their minor interest is housed to learn more about minor course requirements. They should also consult with their GWSB advisor to insure they will be able to pursue a minor and stay on track towards graduation. Minors can typically be completed within four years for students who have only one BBA concentration; students completing a dual concentration and/or studying abroad may or may not be able to complete a minor in four years.
A list of minors available outside GWSB can be found here.
The Minor Declaration Form can be found on the Advising Center’s Forms page.
The School of Business offers a minor in Business Administration that can be pursued by undergraduate students whose home school is not GWSB. The minor requirements can be accessed here.
