Accreditation

The Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (B.S.B.A)programs in Global Business, Accounting, and Economics offered in the Sorrell College of Business are accredited by AACSB International– The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools in Business. In addition, the undergraduate accounting program housed in the School of Accountancy carries supplemental AACSB accounting accreditation.

The Bachelor of Science in Hospitality, Sport, and Tourism Management (Sport Management concentration) offered in the School of Hospitality, Sport, and Tourism Management is separately accredited by the Commission on Sport Management Accreditation (COSMA).

Degree Programs

The Sorrell College of Business offers two undergraduate degrees, the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (B.S.B.A.) and the Bachelor of Science in Hospitality, Sport and Tourism Management.

Within the B.S.B.A., students select a major from degree programs in Global Business, Accounting, or Economics. Global Business majors select one of a wide range of concentrations designed to prepare graduates for careers in a variety of business fields: Accounting and Finance, Data Analytics, General Business, Human Resource Management, Information Systems, Management, Marketing, and Risk Management Insurance, or specified Interdisciplinary concentrations. Students majoring in Economics select a concentration in either General Economics or Financial Economics.

The B.S.B.A. degree programs are offered through the School of Accountancy; the Department of Economics and Finance; the Department of Management and HRM; the Department of Marketing and Business Law; and the Department of Risk Management and Data Analytics.

The B.S. in Hospitality, Sport and Tourism Management is offered through the School of Hospitality, Sport and Tourism Management. The mission of the School of Hospitality, Sport, and Tourism Management is to prepare students to become future leaders and scholars in hospitality, sport and tourism management by providing exemplary integrative and experiential academic preparation in a collaborative environment, to conduct seminal and applied research that impacts the hospitality, sport, and tourism industries on a local, national, and global level, and to provide professional and community service.

The total experience within the School of Hospitality, Sport and Tourism Management facilitates students to have an exceptional fundamental education, engagement in service learning experiences, exposure to working professionals, and career preparation through internships. As a result, students are provided a competitive advantage in a job market that is projected to see continual growth.

The School of Hospitality, Sport and Tourism Management prepares students for a variety of positions in the hospitality, sport and tourism industries. The goal of the faculty and School is to create an integrated academic learning environment for analyzing and resolving the challenges in the deliverance and business of hospitality, sport and tourism. The faculty and staff are committed to providing support for student achievement. Students can enter the hospitality, sport and tourism industries with exceptional knowledge, professional preparation, and the confidence to assume leadership positions.

The School of Hospitality, Sport and Tourism Management offers three undergraduate concentrations: (1) Hospitality Management, (2)Sport Management, and (3) Tourism Management. The focus of the undergraduate program is to provide a comprehensive educational experience and to train students for entry into the sport management, leisure services, and/or tourism and hospitality occupations at the professional level.

Hospitality Management is the study of all people, activities, businesses, and/or organizations involved in providing service to support the restaurant, accommodation and/or event industries. Students graduating with a concentration in hospitality are prepared for careers in hotels, restaurants, resorts, conference centers, event management, casinos, retail, club management, entertainment, and other hospitality-related businesses.

Sport Management is the “study and practice of all people, activities, businesses, or organizations involved in producing, facilitating, promoting, or organizing any sport-related business or product” (Pitts and Stotlar, 2007). Students graduating with a concentration in sport are prepared for careers in interscholastic, intercollegiate, professional, and recreational sport as well as careers in event management, retail, sales, and other sport-related business.

Tourism Management is the study of all people, activities, businesses, organizations, and destinations involved in providing products and services to individuals traveling to and staying in places outside their usual environment for leisure and/or business. Students graduating with a concentration in tourism are prepared for careers in convention and visitors’ bureaus, resorts, destination marketing organizations, government tourism departments, conference centers, event management, theme parks, historic sites, nature-based tourism and other tourism-related businesses.

Bachelor of Business Administration (B.S.B.A.) Degree Requirements

This section outlines the degree requirements for all B.S.B.A. students in all majors and concentrations. Specialized program requirements for each of the majors and concentrations within the  B.S.B.A. degree are listed in separate sections on the following pages. Students need to consult both this section and the section for their major/concentration when planning their course of study.

For more information on general requirements for all Troy University baccalaureate degrees, see the index listings for baccalaureate degree parameters, general studies, and academic regulations.

General Studies Program: Specialized Requirements

All students are required to complete the Troy University General Studies Program requirements (see the index listing for general studies for more information). The B.S.B.A. requires the selection of certain courses within the General Studies Program:

Area III: MTH 1112 or MTH 1125

Area IV: ECO 2251 and ECO 2252

For all other General Studies requirements, students may select from courses approved within the General Studies Program. Note that ECO 2251, ECO 2252, and IS 2241 (required under Area V of the General Studies Program) are classified as lower-level business courses — see the GPA and Grade Requirements: Lower-level Business Program for more information.

GPA and Grade Requirements: General Studies Program

Students must complete MTH 1112, ENG 1101, and ENG 1102 (or their equivalents) with a grade of “C” or higher in each course. Students will not be permitted to register for upper-level business courses until this requirement is met.

Students are allowed a maximum of three attempts at completing each of these courses with a grade of “C” or higher.

Lower-level Business Program

All B.S.B.A. students must complete a 65-hour program consisting of the General Studies Program and the Lower Business Core, including MGT 3300 and MKT 3300 (all courses above 3300 are considered upper-level courses). In addition, Troy campus students will begin their Professional Development and Engagement course series (see below). Students nearing the completion of the initial 65 hours should consult their academic advisors for guidance on the transition to upper-level courses upon meeting the lower-level business program requirements.

GPA and Grade Requirements: Lower-level Business Program

Students must complete this 65-hour program with a 2.0 GPA (2.3 GPA for accounting majors) before they will be permitted to register for upper-level business courses. In addition, students must have a 2.0 average across all of the lower-level business courses in the General Studies Program and Lower Business Core before being permitted to register for upper-level business courses. The lower-level business courses are ACT 2291, ACT 2292, ECO 2251, ECO 2252, IS 2241, LAW 2221, MGT 3300, MKT 3300, and QM 2241.

Transition to Upper-level Courses

Once the above requirements are met, students will be admitted to the upper level and may begin registering for upper-level business courses. However, in some cases, students in their last semester or term of completing the 65 hour lower-level business program will have too few lower-level courses remaining to maintain full-time student status. In such cases, so long as all other requirements above are met, a student may begin taking upper-level courses approved as “bridge” courses. Note that the 65hour lower-level business program must be completed in the same term or semester as bridge courses are begun—no lower-level courses may be postponed or substituted for bridge courses. Students in a bridge semester or term must register for all remaining lower-level courses and may then add upper-level bridge courses to complete a usual course load (typically up to 18 credit hours). Students whose schedules necessitate a bridge semester should consult their academic advisors for a current list of approved bridge courses. Students who fail to complete their Lower Business Core and/or General Studies during the bridge semester/term will be restricted to a maximum of 12 hours in subsequent semesters until these requirements are met.

Upper-level Business Courses and Upper Business Core

Upon completion of the 65 hour lower-level business program as outlined above, students will be permitted to register for upper-level business courses. The upper-level courses may generally be taken in any sequence unless otherwise specified.

Major and Concentration Courses

Additional upper-level courses are to be selected based on the requirements for a student’s selected major and/or concentration.See program requirements for each major/concentration on the following pages.

GPA and Grade Requirements: Upper-level Business Courses

B.S.B.A. students must achieve a 2.0 average in the Business Core. The Business Core GPA calculation includes courses in the Lower Business Core, Professional Development and Engagement requirement, and Upper Business Core. Students must pass the capstone course, BUS 4476, with a grade of “C” or better. In addition, students must achieve a 2.0 average within their business major. Business students are allowed a maximum of three attempts at completing any business course with passing grade (A “D” is a passing grade unless otherwise specified). Failure to do so will result in being dropped from that major and/or concentration.

Accounting Program

In addition to the GPA and grade requirements for all B.S.B.A. students, Accounting majors must earn a grade of “C” or better in all accounting courses (prefix ACT). Students are allowed a maximum of three attempts at completing each of these courses with a grade of “C” or higher; if they fail to achieve a “C” or better after three attempts, they will be dropped from the Accounting Program. However, Accounting majors may elect another business major as long as they meet the other requirements for being in the business program.

Residency and Non-Business Majors

The business administration core and major each require a minimum of 12 hours of Troy University residence credit. Non-Business majors in upper-level Business Courses (above 3300)must be in a declared business minor, in a contract minor, be a bona fide transient student who has completed at least 60 hours, and have a GPA of 2.0 or higher. These students may contact the senior Associate Dean’s Office in order to register for business courses above 3300.

Transfer Students and Transfer Credit

A minimum of 31 credit hours in business courses within the B.S.B.A. program must be completed at Troy University. Credits transferred for general studies courses taught by the Sorrell College of Business (e.g., ECO 2251, ECO 2252, and IS 2241) do not count toward this 31 hour minimum.

Transfer credit for any course in the B.S.B.A. business core or major/concentration will only be approved for courses in which the student earned a grade of “C” or higher.

No transfer credit will be approved for any course in which programmatic assessments are conducted. Credits not transferred for this reason may be considered for Sorrell College elective courses.

Transfer credits for upper-level courses are permitted only from AACSB accredited schools or upon approval of the Dean of the Sorrell College of Business. Credits at the 1000 or 2000 level generally do not transfer for 3000 level courses, with the exception of MGT 3300 and MKT 3300. Credits at the 1000 and 2000 level from AACSB accredited schools may be considered for transfer for upper-level courses on a case-by-case basis. In all cases, the Dean of the College will make the final decision concerning transfer credit allowable within the curricula.
