The College of Business (COB) announced the start of an initiative to provide broader access to business education with the launch of the online version of its popular Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree program.
The launch is part of the recently announced rollout by UAFS to better serve communities who don’t have ready access to the UAFS campus, but who wish to participate in the quality educational opportunities offered. Currently the initiative includes offerings from the College of Business and the College of Applied Science and Technology (CAST).
The website states that, “The Bachelor of Business Administration degree is a high quality, affordable, marketable, and fully externally accredited business degree. Majoring in business administration prepares students for successful careers in a competitive and fast-paced environment.”
Dr. Ashok Subramanian, dean of the College of Business, expressed enthusiasm for the project. “We’re excited to be part of this initiative and expect the online BBA to be a popular option for those seeking to earn a business degree.”
The dean also noted that it will be hard to find an AACSB-quality program at such an attractive cost. “It’s simply one of the best values in the country, period,” he said.
Program notes state that the online program is geared toward people who are seeking to complete a business degree, likely have some credits accumulated already, or perhaps hold an associate degree. Military service members are expected to find the offering particularly attractive.
