Dual degree in business administration
The dual degree programs allow students to earn the bachelor of science in business administration degree in addition to a nonbusiness degree. Because of course sequence requirements, students should begin the dual degree program in their sophomore year. Students must be enrolled in both the college offering the nonbusiness degree and the College of Business Administration.
Any student who wishes to complete a dual degree must satisfy the requirements, other than university general education requirements, for both degrees. The business administration requirements include course work in the following areas: communications, quantitative, social sciences, economics, and business. For further information about the exact academic requirements, contact Student Services, College of Business Administration, 107 Calvin Hall, 785-532-6180.
The business honors program offers qualified students opportunities beyond those found in the regular business curriculum. Honors students can enroll in smaller, more interactive sections of core business courses; they can enroll in honors sections of courses offered by other colleges, such as Honors Composition; and, if they choose, students are paired with professionals in their chosen field in a mentoring relationship.
To qualify for the business honors program, students, other than transfer students, must have been enrolled at K-State for at least one semester, have a 3.6 cumulative GPA, and file an application for membership in the program. Transfer students must have a 3.6 cumulative GPA and complete the application.
To graduate in the business honors program students must enroll in two semesters of the honors colloquium (GENBA 299) and two of the honors seminar (GENBA 499). Additionally they must successfully complete five honors classes (grade of C or better), four of which must be in the College of Business Administration.
The College of Business Administration, through the internship program, offers opportunities for students to obtain experience in business and industry as part of their college education. Students work through Career and Employment Services and are selected through formal interviews with participating companies.
Pre-business education majors are enrolled in and advised by the College of Education. Students interested in the field are instructed to refer to the College of Education section for details.
Law schools emphasize various objectives in pre-law study for the development of basic skills and insights. These objectives are: the acquisition of skills in comprehension and expression; understanding human institutions; and the ability to think clearly, carefully, and independently. A pre-law student enrolled in the College of Business Administration not only achieves these important goals, but also obtains a broad business background that is desirable preparation for the study of law.
Upon graduation, most students will be involved in organizations, profit or nonprofit, that will use business concepts and principles to improve their services or products. To complete the business minor students must graduate from another Kansas State University college and complete the business courses listed below:
Students will be responsible for meeting the prerequisites for the business courses in the minor program. Three of the five courses must be completed at Kansas State University.
