General Elective Courses
In addition to the requirements of the major, and the General Education Curriculum requirements, additional coursework is required to meet the requirements of a Bachelor of Business Administration.

BBA Majors require a minimum of 120 credit hours to graduate. No more than 90 hours of these hours may be earned at a community college.  Transfer students must earn at least 25% of their hours from MUW.  MUW does not award credit for technical or vocational courses except in the B.A.S. program.
