Business Administration

The A.S.B. option in business administration is a preprofessional degree. The academic program leading toward the degree helps you prepare for careers at the operational level of business.

Admission

Freshman students are not eligible for direct admission to this program. If you satisfy IPFW admission requirements (see Part 7), you will be assigned to Academic Counseling and Career Services (Kettler 110E, 481-6814) until you have satisfactorily completed the first 30 credits toward this degree with a cumulative GPA of 2.00 or higher. Developmental courses (e.g., ENG R150 and W130; MA 109, 111, and 113) do not count toward these 30 credits.

All credits earned in the business administration option can be applied toward the Bachelor of Science in Business if you qualify for admission to that program.

Degree Requirements

You must satisfy the requirements of IPFW (see Part 7) and the Richard T. Doermer School of Business and Management Sciences (listed in this section) and earn a minimum of 63 credits in courses in (1) general education and (2) general business and economics. The final 15 consecutive credits required for this degree must be completed after you have been admitted to the A.S. program.

To remain in the program and graduate, you must earn a grade of C or better in all ENG writing courses and all business and economics courses, and maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.00 or better. Business and economics courses completed by correspondence are not applicable.
