BAM General Description

The BS in business administration with a concentration in management at Trevecca is designed to help working adults who have at least an associate degree in a business-related area or equivalent content prerequisites to complete their bachelor's degree. The 20-month, 48-semester-hour program is composed of 16 courses in a variety of business and management areas. Students can also use documentation of prior learning through life experience as part of the program.

BAM Coursework

The BS in business administration is structured as an accelerated business-based curriculum. Forty-eight semester hours are earned by completing coursework in the major. The courses take place one night a week for 20 months. There are four semesters of four courses each. Each semester is 5 months in length. Students will be part of a cohort group who will attend all the courses together forming an adult support group. Students holding an A.A.S. instead of an A.S. degree will use the first semester to take missing general education requirements instead of the scheduled business courses since they already will have been completed as part of the A.A.S. degree. Students will need to consult with an advisor to make sure all need requirements are met.

Although each course is scheduled for seven weeks, the first week is set aside for individual work in preparation for the first face-to-face class session. The seventh week is set aside for completion of the final project/assignment.
