Frequently Asked Questions
Due to the Graduate Studies Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) program closure, this document has been created to aid students in completing their BSBA degree with Emmanuel College. The graduate studies undergraduate management degree will cease course offering at the conclusion of the Spring 2 session in April 2015.
Students received individual course completion plans showing a path to graduation from their Academic Advisor back in December 2011. If students have any questions or are thinking about straying from those individual plans, please contact your Academic Advisor immediately to ensure these deviations will not affect graduation eligibility.
As you will notice beginning in Fall 1 2013, the course offering for humanities and electives are noted as TBD (to be determined). There will be a humanities or elective offered at that time based on the needs of the remaining students that have followed their individual plans.

A: A leader in adult education for more than 25 years, and fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Emmanuel College offers accelerated programs for professional adults.

Q: How long will it take me to complete my degree?
A: The BSBA program requires 32 courses, at least 12 of which must be taken through Emmanuel College. With the ability to transfer previous course credits or gain credit though standardized exams, the BSBA may be completed in as little as two to three years.
Q: How do I transfer credits from other schools?
A: You can transfer course credits from regionally accredited institutions with a grade of "C" or better. We encourage you to work with an Enrollment Counselor prior to registration to review transcripts for transfer credit potential. You will receive an official evaluation of your transfer credits upon admission to the program.
