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.
