Bachelor of Science in Business
The baccalaureate program of the School of Business is based on the principle of a balanced education in business administration and economics with a foundation in the arts and sciences. The undergraduate program allows students to specialize in professional fields integral to contemporary enterprise and management. It prepares students in north central Indiana to become effective organizational leaders and managers.
The undergraduate curricula consists of three parts: (1) general education, (2) basic business administration, and (3) professional courses. In addition, the program includes courses covering the principles, practices, and trends involved in managing organizations in today's dynamic economic, social, and political environment.
Seniors have a range of elective courses in their concentration area. Courses on this level require participation by students in the discussion and solution of cases, projects, and special problems drawn from the contemporary business world.
Students enrolled in other degree programs may fulfill the course work for the Business Minor. Students who have already earned their bachelor's degrees can take the Post-baccalaureate Certificate in Accounting to prepare for professional positions in public, industrial, or governmental accounting. After completing the program, students are prepared to take the Certified Public Accountant (C.P.A.) examination.

Of these, at least 56 credit hours must be in courses other than business and economics. Thirty of the last 45 credit hours must be taken at IU Kokomo, and at least 50% of business credits must be earned at Indiana University.
