The 3+1 Bachelor of Business Administration program is designed as a degree pathway for two groups of students who would like to become business administration majors:
As a private, nonprofit university, SNHU has one mission - to help you see yourself succeed. The benefits of majoring in business administration at SNHU include:
Put your course study into practice with internships that give you valuable hands-on business experience. SNHU faculty, alumni and our career development staff can help connect you with experiential learning opportunities that prepare you to enter the business world.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of human resources managers is projected to grow 9% from 2014 to 2024, faster than the average for all occupations. Trained leaders, such as those who have graduated with a BS in Business Administration degree, should see a growing demand for their skills.
SNHU requires 120 credits to complete our bachelor's degree in business administration. Students who have at least 90 completed credits from another college or university (of which 30 must be in business) can complete their final year at SNHU and earn a Bachelor's of Business Administration. Southern New Hampshire University requires an additional 30 credits to complete our bachelor's degree.
The additional requirements for courses are very flexible and call for at least five general education courses, including two English composition courses. All English requirements must be fulfilled by providing TOEFL, IELTS, or PTE scores. Students needing further intensive English will require additional coursework.
Another five courses must be in business. One required course will be Strategic Management, along with four upper-level business classes, which may be chosen from accounting, finance, hospitality, organizational leadership, marketing, operations and project management, international business or IT. Any prerequisites for these advanced-level courses would have to be met as additional courses.
