Why Earn a Bachelor of Science in Business Degree?

BJU’s accredited Bachelor of Science in Business is a fully online business degree completion program designed to fit the adult learner’s schedule. 

You will gain practical experience in the major areas of a typical business — finance, marketing, accounting, human resources and technology — and foundational courses promote communication, ethics, leadership and global awareness. Experienced and engaged instructors, many from BJU’s respected School of Business, teach every course from a biblical worldview.

Skills you learn will build a strong foundation for work and service opportunities, or they will just help you realize a dream you’ve kept alive for years.

In addition to the required major courses below, you will be able to select a 15-credit concentration in either finance/accounting or marketing. You’ll learn to improve your “soft skills” and how to address issues from a biblical perspective, which sets the program apart from other degree completion programs.

Our courses are offered in a short, accelerated format that takes about one half of a semester to complete. This format allows students to schedule two sessions of classes each semester, as well as each summer.

Because each student will transfer in a different number of credits, the required courses listed below and the time to complete the program will vary. If you transfer the minimum of 45 credits and take two courses each time courses are available, it will take about two years to complete the program.
