Business Administration, BS

Overview

Today’s business world is constantly moving at a rapid pace. The most important skill a professional can have is adaptability, as they maneuver through the changes they encounter every day. Those looking for success not only need to be open to change but also need to embrace it. Without a strong basis in adaptability, a businessperson may find themselves far behind the curve before they can realize it.

Grace College’s GOAL (Grace Opportunities for Adult Learners) program is created just for students balancing work and personal commitments while pursuing an education. Our online Bachelor of Science in Business Administration program offers convenient scheduling and academic resources to make completing a bachelor’s degree a reality. In addition to competitive tuition rates, you won’t have any book costs because courses in the GOAL programs use Open Educational Resources (OER), digital, openly licensed content. Building upon previous college credits and life-long learning experiences equivalent to about two years of college, the GOAL degree can be completed in 16 months.

We are committed to helping adult learners garner more skills to further their education. Our Bachelor of Science in Business Administration is built from the ground up to help adults gain the skills needed to follow the career path of their choice. We will provide you the tools needed for success in today’s rapidly changing workplace.
