Business Administration Degree Online

A major in Business Administration is available fully online for the B.B.S. The major’s virtue is its flexibility. It leaves room for a minor field of study, twelve hours of business electives, and eighteen hours of general electives. Some favorite business electives include healthcare, real estate, banking, international business, and business analytics.

Who is this program for?

  1. Transfer students who want more of their previous coursework to count toward their degree – a lot of flexibility is built into the degree plan: 18 hours of electives (enough for a second minor), 12 hours of business electives, ability to transfer social sciences credits earned through dual credit or at previous universities
  2. Students in rural areas who need to continue working after high school, but want a degree
  3. “Non-traditional” students who have started working but want to acquire more knowledge and advance their careers
  4. Anyone who wants an affordable, high-quality education – only $495 per credit hour

You don’t have to stop with a bachelor’s degree, either. The M.A. in Management can be completed, 100% online, in as little as one year after completing your bachelor’s.

Our online programs integrate our Christian faith just like our on-campus courses, adhering to the mission of Hardin-Simmons University: To be a community dedicated to providing excellence in education enlightened by Christian faith and values.

From the Occupational Outlook Quarterly, published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics: Career preparation may be the primary reason that business is a popular major for undergraduates. Business majors’ coursework in business strategy, statistics, accounting, finance, and operations management gives them skills in quantitative analysis. Research, writing, and presentation assignments enhance their ability to gather, analyze, and present information. Many projects are done in groups, so students learn to work cooperatively. This training is important to employers, a fact reflected in the competitive salary offers that business majors receive when they enter the job market.
