The Business Administration Major

In addition to the requirements for the B.S.B.A. degree outlined below, all business administration majors must complete a concentration. Except as otherwise noted on the concentration pages, a concentration area requires four courses minimum chosen from a single Robins School of Business department. A maximum of seven courses can be taken in any area of concentration.

Business administration majors must choose a concentration from the following areas: accounting, economics, finance, international business, marketing, or management.
