Bachelor of Economics (BS)

Bachelor of Economics (BS)

The Bachelor of Business Communication (BA) program objective is to help students develop an expert knowledge of the complexity and importance of communication processes, and an awareness of cultural and environmental issues. The Bachelor of Business Communication (BA) program is offered online via distance learning. After evaluating both academic record and life experience, (CSUNY) staff working in conjunction with Faculty and Academic Advisors will assist students in setting up a custom-made program, designed on an individual basis. This flexibility to meet student needs is seldom found in other distance learning programs. Our online program does not require all students to take the same subjects/courses, use the same books, or learning materials.

Instead, the online Bachelor of Business Communication (BA) curriculum is designed individually by the student and academic advisor. It specifically addresses strengths and weaknesses with respect to market opportunities in the student’s major and intended field of work. Understanding that industry and geographic factors should influence the content of the curriculum instead of a standardized one-fits-all design is the hallmark of (CSUNY)’s unique approach to adult education. This philosophy addresses the dynamic and constantly changing environment of working professionals by helping adult students in reaching their professional and personal goals within the scope of the degree program.

The Bachelor of Business Management (BS, BA) program objective is to provide professionals with the right skill set in a range of key business disciplines with specific emphasis on management skills by blending conceptual theoretical framework with practical applications and covering basic discipline material through to more specialized requirements in the management discipline.
