Business Administration Bachelor of Science

The Business Degree program at North Greenville University offers a liberal arts curriculum and leads to a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration. The program enables students to integrate academic disciplines, Christian lifestyle, and an enriched cultural experience by offering the course work that produces comprehensively prepared Christian business leaders.

Our goals of the business program are to:

  • Equip business majors with the necessary tools to be successful in general management positions.
  • Enable them to emphasize certain aspects of business such as accounting, economics, management, or marketing;
  • Stress the importance of Christian ethics in all areas of business; and
  • Enable them to integrate and analyze theoretical and literary information concerning strategic planning.

The program curriculum will:

  • Provide students with the analytical, technical, communication, and interpersonal skills needed to succeed in today’s competitive global markets,
  • Encourage the development of high ethical standards in connection with current legal and business environments, and
  • Provide maximum opportunities for personal interaction between faculty and students.

The learning experience is further enriched by internships coordinated with regional firms and the faculty.

A minimum of 129 hours is required for the Business Administration degree plus 1 hour of chapel and cultural events for each full-time semester. (Advisors will provide a course sequence sheet that, if followed successfully, will assure graduation in four years.)
