Kansas State University refreshes online general business bachelor's degree

Thursday, May 3, 2018


MANHATTAN – Kansas State University's online bachelor's degree in general business has been streamlined with a revised curriculum that adds four distinct concentrations, all designed to better prepare students for the diverse environment of the modern business world.

The program adds four concentrations: operations/supply chain management, human resource management, marketing and business analytics. The refreshed curriculum also trims the credit hour requirement to 120.

Chwen Sheu, associate dean in the College of Business Administration, said the curriculum changes help the program stand out in an online space that continues to become more competitive.

"Online education is both prevalent and growing, with more and more universities offering online business degree programs," Sheu said. "We need to continue to review and upgrade our curriculum to improve the quality of our online program. Many studies have suggested the need for a more specialized program, and restructuring the program by adding areas of concentration will definitely meet students' needs better and enhance our program's competitiveness."

The refreshed bachelor's in general business joins a suite of online business degrees offered through K-State Global Campus, including a professional MBA and graduate certificates in business administration, organizational leadership and data analytics.
