The College of Business has launched the first-ever undergraduate online degree program offered at SDSU. The Bachelor of Science in business online degree program will commence in the fall semester of 2017.
The inaugural program is designed for students who have finished a minimum of 60 general education and prerequisite business credits that are transferable to SDSU. Students must take between 49 – 55 units from SDSU online program depending on their writing proficiency.
“This program was specifically designed to serve those with work and family responsibilities and for transfer students who may not have the ability to attend campus on a regular basis,” said Dr. George Belch, interim dean at SDSU’s College of Business Administration. “Upon completion, students will earn the same degree, diploma and transcript as on-campus students which does not distinguish that the program was online.”
Online accounting, finance, information systems, management and marketing courses will be taught by members of the College of Business faculty and selected outside facilitators.
Courses are offered during the 16-week fall, spring and summer semesters, with each course lasting 8-weeks. For example, this allows students taking four courses per semester the ability to complete two courses during the first half of the term and two courses during the second half of the term. This provides students the opportunity to complete their degree in as few as two years or at their own pace.
The online program is currently accepting applications for the fall semester of 2017 through November 30 and will be accepting applications again during the spring semester of 2018.
