Frequently Asked Questions

BBA classes consist of asynchronous five-week classes generally taken one at a time. Complete the program anytime, anywhere, as the program is intended for students who want to complete their degree online.




You may qualify for jobs such as Financial Advisor, Marketing Specialist, Human Resources Specialist, Sales Manager or Administrative Services Manager.


If you graduated from a MinnState System two-year institution, many of your courses will apply from the Transfer Pathways course sequence.

The course schedule sequence of one five-week course at a time (e.g. three fall semester and three spring semester) is available for you to review. 

Please note the BBA consists of 37 upper division (300-400 level) credits and a minimum of 40 is needed to graduate from Minnesota State Mankato.  Students can take an elective to fulfill the additional three credits and/or other needed electives in the summer, fall, or spring term.

Students may opt to complete the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum goal areas (if needed), or additional elective courses in summer terms as offered, as these follow the five-week course at a time model.
