The Distance Bachelor of Business Administration (Distance BBA) degree gives students the flexibility to gain general knowledge of various aspects of the business world. Also described as "general business," the Business Administration major is the most popular and flexible program we offer. The major teaches students the universal functions of business, such as planning, organizing, staffing, directing, controlling, and budgeting, as well as how to organize these resources efficiently. After learning in each of these disciplines, you will then complete more advanced coursework from a variety of areas chosen from marketing, branding, entrepreneurship, human resources, finance, and insurance.
The Distance BBA is designed as a part-time online program that students can complete while continuing full-time employment. The degree requires 124 credit hours including:
- MSU General Education requirements (36 hours)
- Freshman-Sophomore business courses (23 hours)
- Junior-Senior business courses (49 hours)
- Free electives (16 hours)
All junior and senior level business courses can be completed online at MSU. Students can also transfer up to 62 credit hours of applicable courses from accredited community colleges or other accredited four-year institutions toward the 124 hours required for the Distance BBA degree.
The Distance Bachelor of Business Administration program delivers online classes that parallel on-campus classes, leading to the same degree and major in Business Administration. Taught by MSU faculty, the Distance BBA is accredited by AACSB, the most elite accreditation for business schools.
