Requirements

The BBA program is accessible if you have some prior college experience, and is aimed at working professionals with at least 45 college credits. By enrolling in the Ivy BBA program, you will be able to balance full time employment, or other personal commitments, and the completion of a four-year degree in business.

As a student enrolled in this program, you will learn the foundations of all areas in business by taking 27 credits of business core courses. You will then select 21 credits of required and elective upper-level coursework in the business administration major. These courses build out specialized knowledge in specific areas of business to align with your personal and professional interests and include an emphasis on critical management and leadership skills.

Students in the program must meet university general education requirements in addition to required foundation, core, and major courses. Pace to completion of the program is contingent upon the transfer of degree-applicable credits. While all College of Business courses required for the program can be completed online at Iowa State, some general education and supplemental courses required for the degree may have limited online availability. Once enrolled, you will work with an academic advisor to determine how best to complete these classes, whether at ISU or a community college. Students can see full requirements for the degree in the BBA Curriculum Guide 2022.
