University of Colorado Denver Launches New Online Undergraduate Degree in Business Administration

DENVER, Feb. 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The University of Colorado Denver Business School recently announced that it will be launching a fully online Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) degree program in fall 2020.

Reinforcing the high quality and innovative tradition that CU Denver is known for, this new online program was designed, developed, and will be taught by the same CU Denver Business School faculty that led the high-demand, on-campus BSBA program.

"As today's business world continues to evolve, there is increasing demand for well-rounded, savvy professionals who have the foundational business skills necessary to hit the ground running," said Gary Colbert, dean of the CU Denver Business School. "In an effort to meet the needs of working students and the increasing requirements for today's workforce, we've transformed our BSBA program into an accessible, online format. Our online BSBA offers adult learners across Colorado the opportunity to gain the practical business knowledge that employers are looking for while earning a bachelor's degree in business on their terms."

The online BSBA program blends essential business skills with experiential learning opportunities, providing students with insight into current business needs and trends. In addition to a holistic business education, online students will have the opportunity to specialize their degree with one of three majors: accounting, management, or marketing.

The online BSBA degree program prepares students to enter the business world with its in-depth, applied curriculum and its focus on hands-on training throughout the program. Students will choose between an internship, a project-based course, or study abroad to satisfy an experiential learning requirement, allowing students to apply their education directly to problems facing business today.

The new fully online, eight-week course format for the BSBA program offers nontraditional learners and working students the flexibility to complete their business degree by focusing on one course at a time. Students will emerge from the program with a strong foundation to launch a career in business or continue on to a graduate degree program.

"Our partnership with CU Online gives learners across Colorado the opportunity to develop industry-relevant skills that can make a lasting impact," said Emily Vera, director of Online Programs and senior instructor of Accounting. "Each course offered in our online program has gone through a rigorous design process to ensure high-quality learning outcomes for our students. The comprehensive curriculum, exceptional faculty, and collaborative learning environment empower BSBA students to critically analyze and reflect on real-world business problems with a global perspective."
