Business Administration (Continued)

Bachelor of Science in Business Administration: International Business

By specializing in international business, a student gains an understanding of the international aspects of business while concentrating in a functional business areaŚmarketing, finance, management, export/import management, or logistics. Courses analyze the rapidly changing international environment and the new management problems and tasks that result. A student can begin a career in a functional department of a company, with the opportunity to move into international operations if a need develops. Alternatively, a student may begin working directly in international operations, including the import-export field.

Students studying abroad in California State University International Programs or in an SFSU Exchange Program may develop special international business concentrations with adviser approval before going abroad. Students with specific educational or career objectives may develop special international business concentrations in consultation with an adviser.

Undergraduates in an international business concentration may not offer toward graduation units on a CR/NC grade basis beyond the core requirements.

See "Bachelor of Science in Business Administration" for general information and core courses.

Bachelor of Science in Business Administration: Concentration in Logistics Management

Logistics management deals with three related and integral parts of the marketing operation. Logistics covers the management of the physical flow of materials and includes such elements as customer service, inventory management, and packaging. Purchasing is marketing from the viewpoint of buying for resale or for use in the production function. Transportation covers the physical move from sources of product to production to consumers. Most job opportunities are in the private sector with carriers, shippers, service providers, or as buyers.

Undergraduate majors may not take departmental concentration courses on a CR/NC basis. Students must have a minimum grade point average of 2.0 in all concentration courses.

MINOR PROGRAMS

The minor programs are not requirements for any degrees or credentials but are available to provide two types of exposure to the field of business administration for the non-business major. The Minor in Business Administration is a general minor whose purpose is to introduce the student to the foundation areas of business. Specialized business minors allow the student to explore one area of business in more depth.

Except in cases of credit by examination, no more than six units of the business minor may be offered on a CR/NC basis. To meet residency requirements, at least fifty percent of any minor program must be taken in residence.

MINOR IN BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION

The Minor in Business Administration draws on business core courses to give a broad, non-specialized exposure to business. It is designed to provide entry-level employment skills for a wide range of jobs and help provide a bridge to the business world for non-business majors. It is also specifically designed to be an integral part of the Pre-MBA program offered by the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences for students wishing to combine an undergraduate liberal arts education and graduate study in business.
