Management Major, Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration (BAB)
Students interested in learning about management should consider the Management major. Within this major students can follow three options: General Business Option, Human Resource Management Option or the Supply Chain Management Major.
Students interested in learning the basic theory and principles of business that are crucial to effective organizational performance and communication across business disciplines should consider the General Business Option. The student has the opportunity to study management as applied to specific areas, including marketing, finance, operations management and management information systems.
Students must be formally admitted to the Business Undergraduate Program or officially declared as a minor before enrolling in business classes in the major. See Business Administration Course Enrollment Policies for more information.
Courses taken for the General Business Option beyond the required Business Administration Core are not counted double toward the Finance, Marketing, Operations Management Option or Human Resource Option majors.
- formal admission to the BAB program is required;
- ECON 200 and ECON 201 are considered supporting courses and may be used to fulfill BACRs as well as requirements for the Business Administration degree; however, these courses are not counted twice toward the total of 180 credits for graduation.
Grade Requirements for Graduation: a minimum grade ≥C in each course required for the major and a minimum GPA ≥2.5 for all upper division Business Administration core courses as well as required and elective courses taken to fulfill requirements for the major area.

Use the Catalog Archives to determine two important catalog years.
SOAR calculates based on these two catalog years.
- The catalog in effect at the student's first term of current matriculation is used to determine BACR (Breadth Area Credit Requirements) and UGR (Undergraduate Graduation Requirements).
- The catalog in effect at the time the student declares a major or minor is used to determine the program requirements.
