The BBA offers a broad educational experience while preparing students for a variety of technical and management careers. With about one-half of the required coursework from nonbusiness disciplines, emphasis is on the development of a strong liberal arts education that provides a foundation for the required and elective professional courses. The program's core curriculum focuses on the fundamental administrative and functional skills demanded of leaders in today's public and private organizations. Students are permitted sufficient latitude in choosing electives appropriate to their particular professional objectives in finance, human resource management, organizational management, management information systems, or marketing. In addition to classroom-based courses, students may participate in internship programs where classroom learning may be applied during professional experience as an employee of a public agency or private business. The internship program provides practical tests of vocational interests and valuable work experience. Honors Program: Degree candidates must earn a 3.30 GPA in all LSBE upper division courses.

Admission Requirements
Freshman and transfer students are usually admitted to pre-major status before admission to this major.
A GPA above 2.0 is preferred for the following:
  • 2.60 already admitted to the degree-granting college
  • 2.60 transferring from another University of Minnesota college
  • 2.60 transferring from outside the University
Freshmen and transfer students are typically admitted as pre-business students for all BBA majors. Admission to candidacy status, which allows access to upper division LSBE classes, typically occurs at the junior level when students have successfully completed all pre-major (pre-candidacy) course requirements, and met all of the GPA standards. Students with a 2.60 UM and overall, 2.00 internal and pre-major, are admitted upon completion of pre-major courses; students with a 2.00-2.59 UM and overall, 2.00 internal and pre-major GPAs, are pooled and reviewed for evidence of academic success in LSBE majors. Students who do not qualify for admission to candidacy may not take upper division LSBE courses (excluding some economics courses) without permission of the director of Student Affairs.
