Business Management students pursuing a specialization register for and complete courses through Ohio State's Lima, Mansfield, Marion and Newark campuses. Upon completion of the curriculum requirements, students will receive the same undergraduate BSBA degree they would have received had they attended classes on the Columbus campus.
Note: Business Majors in regional campus programs may choose a specialization offered on the Columbus campus, but doing so requires completion of some courses at the Columbus campus.
General Education (Gen Ed) courses are an integral part of your undergraduate business education. The goal of the Gen Ed is aimed to help you develop skills, competencies, and breadth of knowledge to become an educated, productive citizen.
You may take General Education requirements at any time throughout your four years to fulfil degree requirements.
All business students are required to complete a series of business core courses that are offered in hybrid only versions on the regional campuses.
Business core courses include managerial and financial accounting, finance, marketing, operations management, logistics management, organizational behavior, international business, business law, business statistics, business analytics, applied business skills, and strategic management.
The business management specialization provides you with an opportunity to delve deeper into each of the functional areas of business. Courses in Marketing Projects, Business Information Systems and Six Sigma Principles are 3 of the 7 specialization courses required. You will integrate the 18 credit hours of specialization courses across the 3rd and 4th years of study.
Electives are additional hours that students need to complete to fulfill 121 hours of coursework.
You can fill your elective hours by taking additional courses in any college level course.
You may also use your elective hours to pick up one of OSU's 100+ minors. Minors are great to expand your skill set, pursue interests outside of business, and individualize your education! The 4 year business plan allows room for a minor (typically 5 additional classes). Talk to your academic advisor about minor options.
