Business Administration Program – Course Selection Guide

The Course Selection Guide serves as a roadmap for Degree Seeking Students in the Business Administration program who began their studies as of AY2018-19, Term 2 and onward. Keep in mind that while the following the roadmap is strongly recommended as the best order in which to proceed through the program, it is not a mandatory. During your studies, you will need to periodically run a degree audit report in the Student Portal to show your current academic status and to plan your degree ahead.

 

 

Associate of Science Degree Requirements

 

The Associate of Science degree in Business Administration requires:

  • The completion of at least 60 semester approved credits
  • Earn a cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of 2.00 in all coursework attempted at UoPeople
  • Earn an overall grade point average (CGPA) of 2.00 in all courses taken in the major area of study
  • Complete the five (5) required proctored exams (exam monitor)
  • Complete all the requirements for the Associate degree in no more than 25 terms of active enrollment excluding periods of separation from the university.

 

 

Bachelor of Science Degree Requirements

 

The Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration requires:

  • The completion of at least 120 semester approved credits
  • Earn a cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of 2.00 in all coursework attempted at UoPeople
  • Earn an overall grade point average (CGPA) of 2.00 in all courses taken in the major area of study
  • Complete the eleven (11) required proctored exams (exam monitor)
  • Complete all the requirements for the Bachelor’s degree in no more than 50 terms of active enrollment excluding periods of separation from the university.

 

The Associate of Science degree with the Bachelor of Science degree level in Business Administration has many goals in common. This reflects the fact that students at the Associate’s level complete the same Year 1 and Year 2 program requirements with students at the Bachelor’s level. However, because students at the Bachelor’s level are expected to achieve these goals at a higher developmental level, they complete additional requirements in the third and fourth year of the program.

 

The Business Administration program is built on a strong liberal arts foundation with an appropriate balance maintained among the three curricular components: The Major, General Education requirements, and Electives. The Associate’s degree program introduces students to the basic tenets of the field of business and also provides a foundation for continued study towards a Bachelor of Science degree. The Bachelor degree program provides students with a comprehensive knowledge of business theories and models and their application to real-world problems.

 

Below is a recommended course selection plan for completing courses in the Business Administration Program. Please note there is no particular order for selecting courses in the Business Administration Program as long as you meet prerequisite requirements. Therefore, if you decide to follow a different plan for completing your degree program, that is completely fine.

 

Note:

  1. As part of the Associate of Science curricular requirements, at least 3 courses including 1 course in Humanities (HU), 1 course in the Social and Behavioral Sciences (SBS), and 1 course in the Natural Sciences and Technology (NST) areas, must be taken to fulfill the Disciplinary Area of knowledge requirements. For the Bachelor of Science curricular requirements, at least 6 courses including 2 courses in the Humanities (HU), 2 courses in the Social and Behavioral Sciences (SBS), 1 course in the Natural Sciences and Technology (NST), and 1 course from a discipline other than your major, must be taken to fulfill the Disciplinary Areas of Knowledge Requirements.
  2. Elective courses can come from any general education course that did not fulfill the General Education requirement (including the Disciplinary Areas of knowledge Requirements) or from any cross major elective or program elective.
