BSBA Accounting

The Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) degree program’s goal is to develop in each student a broad understanding of how the elements and processes of business organizations relate to one another and to the external environment. Degree requirements are designed to develop proficiency and confidence in the functional areas of business. In addition to providing the technical skills required for a professional level business position, the ethical considerations of business are emphasized. Students will select a specialization area as part of the degree program.

Students who successfully complete the BSBA degree program will:

  1. Demonstrate critical thinking and analytical skills.
  2. Demonstrate effective communication and employment skills in their chosen business concentration.
  3. Demonstrate competencies in qualitative and quantitative analysis in business decision making.
  4. Synthesize an understanding of business ethics, legal requirements, and the social responsibility of business.
  5. Articulate an international perspective on the exchange of goods and services.
  6. Utilize and evaluate information technology for business decisions.

NOTE:  The Texas State Board of Public Accountancy (TSBPA) requires 30 semester hours of approved upper division accounting courses, 21 hours of approved upper division business courses, plus an approved three hour course in ethics, included within a total of 150 semester hours with a degree, as qualifications to sit for the CPA examination.

It is the student's responsibility to make certain they are meeting the requirements for the CPA; therefore we encourage you to research the requirements within the state you are testing. At least 15 of these hours must result from physical attendance at classes meeting regularly on the campus of the transcript-issuing institution.
