Bachelor of Business Administration

BBA Degree at UIW

IMG_6949At a private university nestled in the heart of the 2nd largest city in Texas, San Antonio, the School of Business and Administration offers a unique atmosphere where regional charm meets a cosmopolitan culture. Students can expect a practical education that emphasizes a global reach with respect to international and cultural understanding. The HEBSBA offers high-quality undergraduate programs steeped in the UIW traditions of faith, service, innovation, truth, and education.

The Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree program’s goal is to develop in each student a broad understanding of how the elements and processes of business organizations relate to one another and to the external environment. Degree requirements are designed to develop proficiency and confidence in the functional areas of business. In addition to providing the technical skills required for a professional level business position, the ethical considerations of business are emphasized.

Concentrations

The BBA degree program affords students the opportunity to select an area of concentration in a discipline of their choice, to include:

Accounting

Economics

Finance

General Business

International Business

Management

Management Information Systems

Marketing

Professional Golf Management

Sports Management

Admission to Major in Business

Students should apply to the major in Business Administration as soon as they are eligible to do so. To be eligible to apply for the major a student must have completed 32 semester hours as defined by University requirements and have at least a 2.0 grade point average. In addition, the student must have completed College Algebra (or a higher level mathematics course) with a grade of “C” or better.

In addition, students have the opportunity to complete a minor in business administration, information systems, management, and marketing. Academic requirements for award of a concentration, and for award of a minor with a concentration, are defined on each concentration’s page.

In determining whether students have satisfied the requirements for a concentration, or for a Minor, “double counting” a course to satisfy more than one requirement is not acceptable. A completed course may be credited once only. As an example, if a business student successfully completes BINT 3331: International Business Management, the student has satisfied a core requirement. The student may not credit BINT 3331 again to satisfy a 3000 level course requirement for his or her concentration.

Accelerated Bachelor of Business Administration/Master in Business Administration

The Accelerated BBA/MBA degree program allows academically prepared and motivated undergraduate students an opportunity to complete degree requirements for both the bachelor and master degrees at an accelerated pace. By linking the curricula of the undergraduate and graduate business programs, not only is student knowledge and skill level reinforced, but students can complete both programs sooner and at less expense than if they enrolled in both programs separately.

The BBA/MBA can be used for any BBA concentration and for any MBA. See the Graduate Bulletin for additional information and degree course requirements.
