Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration (BA)

The Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Business Administration is a flexible, broadly-based degree ideal for those students who want solid business content along with a non-business minor. Because this degree requires several quarters of foreign language, it works well for students who want a minor or second major in modern languages and/or who want to study abroad.  Many pre-professional students (pre-med, pre-dent, pre-law, etc.) find this degree especially attractive because they can not only obtain a solid background in business but also meet the prerequisites of professional schools.
