The College of Business Administration offers educational programs in all areas of business while advancing knowledge through research, providing community service, and supporting the development of business in the global economy. Fulfilling these objectives creates a stimulating learning environment for the student and expands the frontiers of knowledge.

The baccalaureate and master's programs in business administration and accounting are fully accredited by AACSB the International Association for Management Education, the national accrediting organization for business and management programs.

Degree Programs

The college offers programs leading to the degrees of Bachelor of Business Administration, Master of Business Administration, Master of Science, Master of Science in Accounting, and Doctor of Philosophy. At the undergraduate level, students may major in Accounting, Economics, Finance, General Business, International Business, Management, Management Information Systems, Marketing, and Petroleum Land Management.

150 Program: Joint B.B.A.Master's. This program is a 150-hour track leading to a Bachelor of Business Administration degree and a master's degree in business administration or accounting. The program is designed for academically outstanding undergraduate students who wish to complete a master's degree while at Texas Tech. Completion of this program can enhance both starting salaries and career advancement.

Students should apply to the graduate component of the program during the first semester of their junior year. Graduate course work cannot be taken prior to acceptance. Application materials are available in the College of Business Administration's Graduate Services Center.

Admitted students will combine undergraduate and graduate courses during the final semester of their undergraduate work. Grades of A or B in specific undergraduate courses can waive up to 12 hours of graduate courses thus allowing a student to obtain both bachelor's and master's degrees with 150 hours. One possibility is to earn grades of A or B in BLAW 3391, MATH 2345, ECO 2301, 2302, and any upper division economics course, ISQS 2440 and 3343 or 3344.

Joint Program: B.B.A. and Master of Architecture. This program is designed to provide a broad background for a variety of careers in business, government, architecture, and building related industries with particular emphasis on developing analytical tools and skills with managerial perspectives, thereby enhancing worldwide career opportunities. See the College of Architecture section of this catalog for a full program outline of this joint program.

Joint Program: B.B.A. and B.S. in Agricultural and Applied Economics. This joint program leads to two degrees: a Bachelor of Business Administration with a major in General Business and a Bachelor of Science with a major in Agricultural and Applied Economics. Students completing these joint programs will have increased understanding of business management principles, concepts and analytical abilities as applied to agribusiness. See the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources section of this catalog for a full program outline of this joint program.

Joint Program: B.S. in Agribusiness. This distinctive Bachelor of Science program prepares students for careers in agribusiness by providing a curriculum that includes courses designed to develop interpersonal and communication skills, business-economics skills, technical-quantitative skills, and ethics. Courses in international business equip students for the world economy and provide marketability for a wide range of careers. This is a joint program administered by the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources and the College of Business Administration. See the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources section of this catalog for a full program outline of this joint program.

B.B.A. Degree Requirements

Honors College for Business Majors. Students from all areas of the College of Business Administration may enter the Honors College. Students with high grade point averages are encouraged to apply for admittance into this prestigious program. Honors sections are offered in the following business courses: ACCT 2300, 2301, 3304, 3307, FIN 3320, MGT 3370, 3373, 4373, 4374, 4377, 4378, 4379, and MKT 3350.

Lower Division Curriculum. The Lower Division requirements should be completed during the freshman and sophomore years. All students wishing to major in business are classified as COBA (College of Business Administration) until completion of the Lower Division Business Core (I S 1300, ENGL 1301, 1302, MATH 1330, 1331, 2345, ACCT 2300, 2301, ISQS 2440, and ECO 2301, 2302) with grades of C or higher and attainment of a minimum 2.5 or higher adjusted Texas Tech GPA. Upon the attainment of these minimum requirements, application may then be made to the Undergraduate Services Center for a specific major. Admission to the Lower Division COBA designation does not assure admission to any Upper Division major in the College of Business Administration. Note that the minimum GPA for any major may increase due to limited space availability.

Mathematics Requirement. A mathematics course must be taken each enrollment until the math requirement is finished since both MATH 1330 and 1331 must be completed with grades of C or higher before taking some of the required sophomore business courses.

Foreign Language Requirement. Any student who is admitted to the university without two years of high school credit (8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grades) in the same foreign language must complete two semesters of a single foreign language in college. The college-level foreign language courses will replace free electives in the B.B.A. program.

Multicultural Requirement. The college is committed to a globally oriented curriculum that includes international and multicultural issues throughout a student's course work. The university's multicultural requirement will be satisfied by completion of the B.B.A. degree requirements for all students except 150 accounting majors.

Upper Division Curriculum. Junior and senior level business and economics courses may be taken upon admission to the Upper Division of the college. Admission to upper division will be granted upon completion of the lower division business core with grades of C or higher and attainment of a minimum 2.50 adjusted Texas Tech GPA. Upon attainment of these minimum requirements application may then be made to the Undergraduate Services Center for a specific major. Admission to the lower division COBA designation does not assure admission to any upper division major in the College of Business Administration. Note that the minimum GPA for any major may increase due to limited space availability.

Accounting Major. The primary objective of the undergraduate accounting program is to prepare students for accounting positions at the entry level in public accounting, government, industry, and other organizations in the public and private sectors. A major in accounting is also excellent preparation for law school or graduate school. A 2.5 or higher adjusted Texas Tech GPA is required to declare accounting as a major and to take ACCT 3305 and 3306. The requirements to take the CPA examination in Texas include a bachelor's degree, 30 hours of accounting beyond introductory, and a minimum of 150 total hours. The BBA in accounting includes 24 hours of accounting beyond introductory. Thus, BBA students who plan to eventually take the CPA examination are strongly urged to include an additional 6 hours of accounting in their programs beyond the 120 total hours required for the BBA degree. Those students should consult with the faculty advisor for appropriate course work.

Students interested in the International Business major are required to complete the equivalent of three semesters of a single foreign language while in the lower division and then make application for the major. The humanities requirement will be satisfied with completion of the foreign language.

Management Major. The undergraduate management program provides high quality preparation for a wide range of managerial careers. It provides the broadest background of any of the business disciplines for understanding and managing organizations and behavior in these systems. Students may group courses to emphasize their particular interest.

General management is particularly suited for management training programs sponsored by many larger firms and entry level positions in smaller firms. These programs serve as the first step up the management ladder. A 2.5 or higher adjusted Texas Tech GPA is required to declare management as a major.

Graduation Requirements

The Bachelor of Business Administration degree will be awarded to all students who fulfill the following minimum requirements:

·Satisfactory completion of all courses and minimum hours as outlined for each major.

·A minimum Texas Tech adjusted 2.0 GPA.

·Completion of the last 30 hours following official admission into the College of Business Administration.

Application for Graduation. At least one year before the proposed graduation date, application for the degree must be made through the Undergraduate Services Center. Graduation is attained by fulfilling the requirements for a B.B.A. degree using an eligible catalog edition. It is the student's responsibility to fulfill all catalog requirements.

Admission of Transfer Students

Students planning to take their first two years of work at a junior or community college should follow our lower division degree plan. A maximum of 66 hours can be accepted provided none of the courses are vocational, career, or upper division courses (with the exception of BLAW 3391).

Courses that are acceptable from a four-year institution are our lower division requirements, ECO 3311, and free electives plus the following Upper Division Core: FIN 3320, ISQS 3344, MGT 3370, MKT 3350, and BLAW 3391. The last 30 hours must be taken while registered in the College of Business Administration.

Students transferring from any institution must have at least a cumulative 2.5 GPA or higher on all hours taken at any college or university. Transfer credit is not used in the calculation of a student's Texas Tech grade point average. The College of Business Administration has the authority for determining which transfer courses apply toward a B.B.A. degree program. Only free electives may be accepted on a pass-fail basis. Official transcripts from all institutions are needed before the acceptance of transfer credit.

Students requesting permission to transfer from another college at Texas Tech must have a 2.5 adjusted GPA or higher and must bring a copy of all transcripts to the Undergraduate Services Center prior to being officially admitted to the College of Business Administration. A student is officially admitted to the college by a formal transfer completed by the Undergraduate Services Center. Upper division business and economics courses will be used in the degree program if (1) the student had an adjusted 2.5 GPA when the courses were taken and (2) the B.B.A. lower division business core had been completed.

The last 30 hours prior to graduation must be taken while enrolled in the College of Business Administration.

General Standards and Requirements

Accreditation. AACSBThe International Association for Management Education prescribes that at least 50 percent of the total hours in the undergraduate program be in General Education courses. AACSB prescribes that at least 50 percent of the business credit hours required for the business degree be earned at the institution awarding the degree.

Catalog Selection. Students will use the catalog issued for the year in which they were first officially admitted to the College of Business Administration or a more recent catalog if approved. However, if they later transfer to another institution or another college at Texas Tech, they will use the catalog in effect when they are readmitted to the College of Business Administration. For these purposes, a catalog expires after seven years.

Correspondence Courses. Free electives and lower division non BA or noneconomics courses may be taken by correspondence, up to a maximum of 18 hours. Lower division business core, upper division core and major courses and requirements are excluded. A correspondence course cannot be used for graduation when completed during the student's last semester or term.

Course Load. The normal course load for a semester is 15 to 16 hours. The maximum load for a semester is 19 hours (8 hours for a summer term). Correspondence courses are included in a student's course load. The maximum course load for students on probation is 16 hours.

Course Prerequisites. Prerequisites are governed by the catalog in effect when the course is taken.

Grades of Incomplete. Grades of Incomplete must be removed at Texas Tech University, not by transfer credit.

Ineligible Registrations. The College of Business Administration reserves the right to drop any ineligibly registered student from a course for reasons such as lower division-upper division rule infractions and lack of prerequisites. Courses taken ineligibly are not used in the degree program.

Nondegree Students. A nondegree form must be signed in the Undergraduate Services Center before registration. The nondegree status will continue until a written request for a change has been approved by the Undergraduate Services Center. All prerequisites and academic regulations based on GPA, such as probation and suspension, apply to nondegree students. Courses taken while in the nondegree status may not be used as part of a degree program.

Pass-Fail. Only free electives are eligible for the pass-fail option. No free elective in a student's major area may be taken pass-fail (i.e., accounting course for an accounting major) even if major courses have been completed, nor can a course be taken pass-fail that could be used for a group A or B requirement unless that group has been satisfactorily completed. Pass-fail hours are excluded in determining eligibility for the Dean's Honor List and President's Honor Roll.

Probation and Suspension. See the section of the catalog entitled "Academic Status" concerning probation and suspension policies.

Requirements to Declare an Upper Division Major. The College of Business Administration curriculum consists of two parts: A lower division and an upper division. The lower division requirements should be completed during the freshman and sophomore years. All students who wish to major in business are classified as prebusiness majors (COBA designation) until completion of the lower division business core with grades of C or higher, and attainment of a minimum 2.50 adjusted Texas Tech GPA. Upon attainment of the minimum requirements application may be made to the Undergraduate Services Center for a specific business major. Admission to the prebusiness major (the lower division COBA designation) does not assure admission to any upper division major in the college. Students must meet minimum GPA requirements in effect when a major is declared. Note that the minimum GPA for any major may increase due to limited space availability.

Second Undergraduate Degree. No second bachelor's degree is conferred until the candidate has completed at least 24 semester hours (exclusive of credit by exam) once admitted for the second degree.

Summer Work. Course work to be taken at other institutions must be approved by a COBA undergraduate advisor. Credit from other institutions is not calculated into the student's Texas Tech GPA.

Services

Advising. Each undergraduate student in the college is provided with an academic advisor located in the Undergraduate Services Center on the second floor of the BA building. COBA advisors have the expertise and capability to provide the necessary guidance during each student's degree program and are aided by a computerized degree audit to ensure accuracy. The freshman course "Professional Enterprise" assists students in career planning, and aptitude tests are available in the university Counseling Center.

Upper division students should maintain contact with a COBA advisor in the Undergraduate Services Center concerning degree requirements and with faculty advisors for help in selecting courses to achieve career objectives.
