Harness market-leading technology and business intelligence to help organizations grow, compete and thrive through efficient and innovative process management and analysis.
Henry Ford revolutionized the automobile industry and subsequently the entire global economy not with the ingenuity of a product (Model T) but with a process (the assembly line).
Organizations today continue to use processes to gain a competitive advantage and innovate the market place with the help of highly trained individuals with technical and business know-how and sophisticated technology, including enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems.
The business systems and processes (BSAP) major provides a strong technical background while emphasizing the business knowledge and analytical skills necessary to successfully plan, implement and utilize such systems. Designed for individuals who aspire to harness technology to meet business strategies and goals and improve efficiency, the major will teach you how to use state-of-the-art software and analytical skills to help organizations large and small compete and thrive.
The e-Business major was revamped and renamed to Business Systems and Processes.
In preparation for the switch over, there are some changes to the existing course offerings in academic year 2018-2019.
The changes are:
If you have not done so already, register for the replacement courses as designated above. If you have any questions, consult your academic adviser or make an appointment with the department chair.
If you're already planning to major in business administration, you need just a few additional courses (one additional semester) to graduate with TWO majors and earn the SAP Recognition Award.
BSAP is a screened major. Students are admitted to the major only after successfully completing a set of required courses with an average GPA of 2.7 or higher in those courses and an overall GPA of 2.0 or higher. See all admission requirements.
See degree requirements and course descriptions for the BSAP major in the Undergraduate Catalog.
International students may benefit from the program's STEM designation, which supports an optional practical training extension.
