B.S. Business Administration - Interdisciplinary Program of Study (IPS)/M.B.A.
Students must complete an approved program of study that demonstrates a broad base in business administration, and also demonstrates a significant concentration of study in two or more distinct business concentrations.
It is expected that the approved program of study be filed with the Dean of the College of Business as soon as possible but preferably prior to beginning course work as a third year student (> 60 credit hours). In the event that program approval is sought after beginning the third year’s work, an academic program totaling more than 153 credit hours may be required in order to satisfy all requirements.
All approved IPS programs leading to the degree of B.S. Business Administration (IPS) will incorporate the following features, including:
1. All required General Education requirements;
2. All general business courses;
3. Business electives as necessary to support the development of at least two (2) areas of concentration totaling 30 credit hours (including at least 15 hours completed at Husson with a 2.0 grade point average or better among these courses), resulting in a comprehensive program of study totaling not less than 123 credit hours;
4. 30 credit hours of graduate business courses.
In addition to the program objectives of the B.S. Business Administration degree, this concentration requires students to demonstrate the learning outcomes for the two relative concentrations chosen from the College of Business. Thus, students should refer to the corresponding learning outcomes for those concentrations. Students must also achieve the program objectives of the MBA degree.
The following curriculum should be followed by the Advisor and student to ensure that all degree requirements are met.
