2+2 BBA in Applied Management

BBA 2+2This program is intended for students who have received an associate degree or have graduated from two- or three-year college programs in non-business, professional areas of study.

It allows these students to obtain a BBA to complement their professional studies and to expand their options to include administrative or management careers in their professional fields.

The prerequisites for the BBA in Applied Management are 30 or more credit hours of prior study in a "professional concentration" representing the major field of students' associate degrees.  They must complete Finlandia's 40 credit general education requirements (via transfer credit, courses taken while Finlandia associate degree students, and/or completion of additional Finlandia courses) and the 42 credit BBA Core (required of all BBA students).  Students' programs must include 124 total credits, including those earned for their associate degrees, of which at least 30 must be numbered at the 300/400 level.

Finlandia's associate degree students will usually need to complete an additional 60-63 credits, including 18-21 credits of general education courses and the 42 credit BBA Core (42 credits). 

Depending upon their community college program, associate degree transfer students will generally need more coursework to satisfy Finlandia's general education requirements. For example, the table below provides BBA requirements for Finlandia students receiving an AAS in PTA.
