The Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree with a concentration in General Business is designed for students who want to take a more holistic approach to business and impact organizations’ operations across multiple functional areas.  It is also perfect for students who know they want a career in business but need a chance to explore the various business majors offered at YCP.  The General Business curriculum covers a broad range of business disciplines while exposing students to opportunities to do hands-on work with local organizations.  General Business majors can customize their path, and gain a deeper understanding of a field of their choice, by selecting a minor from all the options available at YCP.  Graduates of this program are prepared for a variety of positions where their breadth of knowledge is useful, including store manager, account manager, consultant, or sales, to name a few.

Requirements for Graduation:

To be eligible for graduation, students majoring in General Business BBA must complete a minimum of 120 credits, achieve a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or higher, and complete the General Education Requirements of the College. A minimum grade of 2.0 is required for First Year Seminar and all courses taken as part of Foundations. Courses used to complete General Education Requirements may not be taken on a pass/fail basis.

The General Education Requirements of the college require students to successfully complete First Year Seminar, Foundations (FCO 103 will be a required co-requisite with FCO 105 for students who have a high school GPA below 3.20), Disciplinary Perspectives, and a Constellation. Students who enter the college with 30 credit hours completed will not take a First Year Seminar course and therefore must take an additional 3 credits for graduation. Transfer students that are awarded 60 or more credits upon acceptance to York College will not be required to complete a Constellation.

Students majoring in General Business BBA must maintain a 2.0 average in the General Business Component courses. In addition, students must attain a 2.0 or higher in each course that serves as a prerequisite to a subsequent business course, (refer to the course description for specific prerequisites). Failure to attain a 2.0 in prerequisite courses may lengthen the time to graduation. Students must also earn a grade of 2.0 or higher in their senior capstone course, BUS 494 . This major requires a second major or a minor be completed with a cumulative 2.0 average. 

Students who are waived from FYS 100 MAT 102 , or other courses must complete an equivalent number of credits. Students who are able to count courses for multiple degree requirements must also complete additional credits to achieve the required total of 120 in order to graduate.
