BBA Curriculum Planning

BBA Curriculum Four Year Plan

We appreciate the time and financial investments you are making over these years to earn your degree. The PLU School of Business is dedicated to helping you complete the Business degree you want “on-time”. We are proud that last year 93% of our undergraduate students completed their degree within four years.

We have outlined sample education plans for students pursuing their degree with one of our concentrations in Accounting, Finance, Management & Human Resources or Marketing, as well as one with no concentration at all. These outlines include all general education, business and concentration requirements. Every student’s path is different so it’s very important to meet with the School of Business Undergraduate Adviser if you are considering pursuing a Business major.
