Students in this program have the opportunity to pursue rigorous liberal arts coursework that supports evidence-based decision making skills while developing practical specialized knowledge in business.

Urbana prefers that applicants to the BSBM program have at least two years of full-time work experience and prefer that you have 57 credits’ worth of transferable college coursework (classes earned at a regionally accredited institution with a grade “C” or higher). You will need to provide us with:
- Official high school transcript and college transcripts from all institutions attended. If you have an associate degree from a regionally accredited college or university, you do not need to provide a high school transcript.
