Bachelor of Business Administration

The Bachelor in Business Administration (BBA) is a program that will help students develop the necessary business acumen to pursue a successful career as an entrepreneur, or in a multinational organization. OCU provides a diverse, dynamic, well-connected environment where students will learn from industry experts as you prepare to launch a global career in business. The BBA is a degree completion program, that is, an academic program specifically designed for students who have started, but not finished, their bachelor degree. By accepting some or all of the credits that a student has already earned from their previous education, OCU’s BBA degree completion program offers students a faster, less expensive, more flexible alternative to starting over from scratch.


OCU requires, minimally, evidence of an earned high school diploma, General Educational Development (GED) tests, ability-to-benefit exam (ATB), or the successful completion of a degree program. OCU also requires that the applicant complete general education requirements prior to applying to OCU, preferably around 60 units or an associate degree.

Transfer Credit

OCU will award a maximum of 80% undergraduate semester hours earned at previous institutions as transfer credit. Transfer credits must be from recognized institutions of higher education.
