Bachelor of Business Administration in Management
The B.B.A. degree in management requires a minimum of 120 credit hours of undergraduate work. Fifty percent of this work, 60 credit hours, must be taken outside of the College of Business. In counting the 60 credit hours of non-business courses, B.B.A. students may include all hours taken in general education (usually 41), up to a total of nine hours in economics (GECON courses must be counted as economics), and three hours of COB 191, Business Statistics.

The remaining hours, to bring the total to 60, must be taken from any department outside the College of Business. Students should carefully select these non-business electives to help them gain additional knowledge and expertise for their careers and personal lives. The credit hour requirements for each of the program components are as follows:

1 The General Education program contains a set of requirements each student must fulfill. The number of credit hours necessary to fulfill these requirements may vary.

Major Requirements

First Two Years
Students planning to major in management must complete the 30-31 hour, lower-division B.B.A. core curriculum prior to enrolling in upper-division core courses normally taken in the first semester of the junior year. It is expected that the lower-division core curriculum will be completed during the first two years of study along with all, or most, of the university general education curriculum. Failing to complete all the lower-division core requirements on time will delay enrollment in upper-division core and major courses until at least the second semester of the junior year. Students enrolling in any 400 level course with a MGT prefix must have senior standing (90 credit hours). Students cannot enroll in more than four courses with a MGT prefix in any given semester.

All management majors will take the three required management core courses.

Required Courses
MGT 340. International Management 
MGT 365. Human Resource Management
MGT 390. Organizational Behavior
Plus one applied course to be fulfilled by one of the following:
     MGT 372. Entrepreneurship
     MGT 494 OR MGT 495. Internship
     MGT 467. Human Resource Strategy and Implementation.

The remaining five management courses, one of which is the applied course, will be determined by whether a student chooses a concentration. Students who do not pursue a concentration may choose any five management courses, one of which must be an applied course, to fulfill their degree requirements. Students in management may choose to concentrate in human resource management or technology, innovation and entrepreneurship (TIE). The requirements for the two concentrations are delineated in the following sections.
