The Bachelor of Science in Business and Professional Leadership (BSBPL) is an undergraduate degree designed for working adults that provides a combination of basic leadership theory and business managerial concepts to enable graduates to advance in their careers.
While similar, this program differs from a traditional business degree in that it assumes the student is seeking a general studies degree with an emphasis in the soft-skills and decision-making aspect of business. This 37 credit-hour major scans the most important concepts in business and organizational leadership. Students may take from 15 to 24 credit hours of practicum credit for either the ministry or marketplace in lieu of general electives.
This is the degree normally understood in the marketplace as an adult degree completion program designed in an accelerated format for students ready to advance in their careers. It is also suitable for students wishing to start their careers in a business field where soft-skills, leadership potential, and experience are important.
Select six credit hours from any of the following:
Any LDRS 3XXX or 4XXX course; or any BBUS 3XXX or 4XXX course
General Electives - 27 Credit Hours
*Extension students may participate in on-site ministerial practicums, which counts towards General Elective requirements. Students who are on the BSBPL PMIN track must take at least 15 credit hours of ministry practicum courses. Students who are on the BSBPL Business Practicum track must take at least 15 hours of business/leadership practicum courses.
