Business Administration (B.S. or B.B.A.)

Return to: List of Academic Programs

Both the B.S. and B.B.A. in Business Administration in Sage After Work are completer programs. Students who enter either program have already done some college-level work and are prepared to pursue a Bachelor’s degree.  Required introductory level courses will normally have been completed and transferred in, but when that is not the case a Sage academic advisor will describe alternatives for completing these courses. This innovative program  provides students with flexible and convenient modes of delivery designed to meet the needs of working adults.

Students may choose the degree program that best fits their needs and accommodates the coursework they transfer in. Both programs provide the knowledge base and the skills necessary for successful business practice and  for a career in management. They also provide the foundation needed for entry into an MBA program as well as an accelerated track option that will benefit students who continue into the Sage Graduate School’s own MBA  program. 

Students have the choice of carrying a full course load and moving through the business program at an accelerated pace, or of moving through at any speed that is comfortable. To best fit the needs of busy students, Sage After  Work provides a selection of courses, many of them web-enhanced, in evening and weekend formats, delivered over a full 15-week semester, over a half semester with reduced class-time, or entirely online.

The B.S. in Business Administration is for students who are able to accumulate a total of 60 credit hours of liberal arts and sciences. The B.B.A. requires fewer credits hours of liberal arts and sciences and is for students who want  to take a larger number of business courses or who bring in a more professional background.
