Southeast’s Bachelor of Science in Business Administration will soon be offered to Sikeston, Kennett, and Poplar Bluff regional campuses.

The program, which offers classes in the evening, was designed to allow working adults with busy day schedules the ability to pursue their studies while offering flexibility to their schedules.

Individuals will be able to choose 24 credit hours in economics, marketing, accounting, finance, management and entrepreneurship courses to complete a major in general business.

The courses will be provided through a series of media including Zoom, face-to-face, Interactive Television (ITV) and online courses.

Dean of Extended Studies Nathan Bullock said Southeast developed the program with the varying schedules of individuals in mind.

“It will be offered at night with some online instruction. Our plan is that it provides a means for working adults to complete their education conveniently and move forward in their careers while maintaining their current jobs, or for younger students to get a business degree without leaving home,” Bullock said.

Dean of the Harrison College of Business and Computing Alberto Davila said offering this degree program will not only encourage an entrepreneurial mindset within Southeast Missouri, but it will also attract domestic and international investment.

The program, originally exclusive to Southeast’s main campus, will be offered to students in the fall semester of 2020.
