A minimum of 42 semester hours must be in upper-level credit (courses numbered 3000 and above).

Academic Major and Minor
A student seeking the B.B.A. degree will complete the appropriate composite major requirements in addition to a specialization in accounting, business, economics and finance, health care administration, international management, management information systems, or management and marketing.

The student may complete the minimum of 124 semester hours required for the
degree with courses which complement or extend career preparation or to pursue subject fields which hold special appeal. However, before using elective semester hours, students should check with their advisors to ensure that the hours are indeed elective and that upper-level semester hour requirements for graduation are being met.
