A new online bachelor’s degree – business administration in management – will prepare graduates for a variety of careers.
It will provide a foundation for managerial positions in fields such as marketing, human resources, communications, project management, and insurance and risk management.
Classes will begin with the Fall 2019 semester. Courses include accounting, economics, finance, management and marketing.
Students must complete 120-122 credit hours on either a part-time or full-time basis. They follow the same curriculum as students enrolled in the traditional program.
Online students can interact with faculty members via telephone, email, discussion forums, and audio and video conferences.
“It provides a convenient way for people who live outside the region or who are juggling jobs or family obligations to obtain the same quality education as students who earn their degrees on campus,” said Dr. Claire Arabie, director of UL Lafayette’s Office of Distance Learning.
First-time, returning or transfer students are eligible to enroll, provided they meet University admissions requirements. Students who have already accrued college credits may be able to apply them toward earning the online degree.
All students – including those from other states and countries – who participate in the online program will pay in-state tuition rates and can apply for financial aid and scholarships.
