San Diego State University is launching an online undergraduate business administration degree program.

The fully-accredited program, SDSU’s first undergraduate online degree program, will allow students to earn a bachelor’s degree in business administration, SDSU said Wednesday in a statement.

“Every course in the online program is taught by SDSU faculty who have demonstrated an ability to excel in their regular on-campus teaching assignments,” said George Belch, interim dean of SDSU’s College of Business Administration. “The goal of the program is to deliver the same rigor and content that students find in the on-campus degree program.”

Students enrolled in the program will take courses in core business concepts including accounting, ethics, finance, information systems, leadership, management, marketing, operations and supply chain management and strategy. Prerequisites include having completed least 60 units of lower-division coursework, including general education and a specific set of business courses.

SDSU said it designed the program in partnership with the SDSU College of Extended Studies for students with work or familial responsibilities as well as for transfer students.

The school is accepting applications for the program, to kick off in fall 2017. More information is available at
