Bachelor of Science in Business - Small Business Management & Entrepreneurship
The Bachelor of Science in Business (BSB) undergraduate degree program is designed to prepare graduates with the requisite knowledge, skills, and values to effectively apply various business principles and tools in an organizational setting. The BSB foundation is designed to bridge the gap between theory and practical application, while examining the areas of accounting, critical thinking and decision-making, finance, business law, management, marketing, organizational behavior, research and evaluation, and technology. Students are required to demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of the undergraduate business curricula through an integrated topics course.
The Small Business Management/Entrepreneurship concentration provides students with a course framework built around small business planning, financial management, and integrated business topics on entrepreneurship and small business management. Within the concentration, students can elect to study advanced concepts in small business marketing, leadership, family business management, operations management, and business law for entrepreneurs. They may also elect to explore in more depth either small business management or entrepreneurship studies as a function of their concentration electives. Students graduating with the Small Business/Entrepreneurship concentration will be prepared to address the challenges and opportunities specific to small business management and entrepreneurship.
In the Small Business Management/Entrepreneurship concentration, 18 credit hours are required. Students must successfully complete four required courses: MGT/300 Survey of Small Business and Entrepreneurship Management, MGT401 The Small Business: Structure, Planning, Funding, MGT/418 Evaluating New Business Opportunities, and MGT/465 Small Business and Entrepreneurial Planning. Students must also complete two additional business elective courses (6-credit hours) within the Small Business/Entrepreneurship concentration. Select courses have prerequisite requirements. In addition to the required course of study, students must satisfy General Education and Elective requirements to meet the 120 (124 for Kansas) semester-credit minimums required for completion of the degree.
