Our business students are self-starters, inquisitive, eager to learn, and ready to make a difference

Degree Requirements

The first two years of study include completion of the All-University Core Curriculum (AUCC) and the lower-division business core courses. Students must have junior or senior status and be admitted into the College of Business to take specialized course work in business concentrations.

Core curriculum sets the minimum course requirements for all business majors. With recommendations from your advisor, you will select supplementary courses to meet the total minimum of 120 credits required for the Bachelor of Science degree. 

All required freshman and sophomore courses must be completed prior to or concurrent with first enrollment in required junior and senior courses. By the beginning of your junior year, you must select a concentration.

Additional requirements that all business majors must complete are:

  1. One of the approved concentrations
  2. All-University Core Curriculum (AUCC) requirements
  3. Not using the satisfactory/unsatisfactory (S/U) grading option in any business concentration course and/or business core course (BUS and non-BUS subject codes) except when a course allows S/U grading 
  4. A minimum grade point average of 2.0 in business courses as a graduation requirement. A student who has less than this average at the end of any term is subject to referral by the department head or college dean to the Faculty Council Committee on Scholastic Standards of CSU for consideration of academic dismissal from the College of Business

Please see our College of Business BSBA Degree Requirements (PDF) for more details.
