Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA)
The Executive BBA Program is a bachelor's degree program with a stair-step structure similar to the Executive programs offered in block schedules or modules.
This program provides a unique blend of traditional academics and executive management programs to effectively equip managers, professionals and executives with the knowledge to confront the major issues and problems encountered in the business world.
The program is designed to help students acquire a functional understanding of business organizations as operating systems within the larger system of society. This is accomplished by ensuring that incoming students possess a reasonably strong background in liberal arts.
Students graduating successfully with a BBA are eligible to apply for admission to graduate programs in the College of Business of Faulkner University. Certain graduate Business programs offered by Faulkner University might require additional prerequisites. The student contemplating transfer or graduate work at another institution bears the sole responsibility for ensuring that work done at Faulkner will satisfy the program requirements at a different university.
Executives enrolled in the program are required to take 6 hours in two courses titled Christian Values and Ethics in Business, and The Executive and the Family. These courses, by studying Biblical passages emphasizing ethics and family values, are to provide a sense of professional responsibility, to act with integrity in the face of social/organizational pressure, and to work constructively with others.
Transcripts from all institutions attended are considered in calculation for honors. The final GPA, which will be considered for honors at graduation, will include all Registrar approved credit from all accredited schools attended (technical and academic) in addition to credit awarded by Faulkner University. Students with an Overall GPA of 3.75 or higher will graduate with honors.
All requirements of the Executive BBA degree must be completed within four (4) years of the initial enrollment to the program. Students who withdraw from the program, prior to re-entry/re-enrollment must satisfy the requirements based on the current curriculum/catalog including completion/satisfaction of any core requirement deficiencies.
