Business, B.S.

The Bachelor of Science (BS) in Business is a business degree intended to give students pursuing other areas of interest (i.e., pre-med, pre-dental, pre-law, etc.) more flexibility to invest in other fields while still developing the breadth of management, interpersonal and professional skill required in today's complex business world.  The BS in Business degree is also designed to be compatible with Southwestern's Distance Education program.
