COBI Bachelor and Associate's Degree Programs



The Undergraduate Catalog is a comprehensive resource to help you prepare for your time at The University of Toledo



The Bachelor's in Business Administration (BBA) undergraduate curriculum includes a broad liberal arts background, a general core of business courses, and a specific area of specialization. During their freshman and sophomore years, students take general education classes, as well as several basic business courses. Also during their sophomore year, students apply to the upper division of the program before beginning their business core and major courses during their junior year. During their junior year, students will also choose an area of specialization. Students can choose to pursue one major, a major and a minor, or two majors - we offer the flexibility for you to customize your education. The College of Business currently offers a BBA in thirteen fields.

The following plans of study for the majors along with the check sheets for a generic major and associate's degrees are provided for current and prospective students in the College of Business and Innovation to get an understanding of the graduation requirements for our various degree programs.

The sample plans of study are guidelines offered to assist students in their term by term course planning. For the official requirements for all degree programs, students must consult the University General Catalog issued in the year they began their degree program and their personalized Degree Audit Report (DARS).

Minors for Business Students

Minors for Non-Business Students

All students must make a formal application for admission to the upper division and to declare their major. The earliest this can be done is while they are registered for the last semester of their sophomore year or the term just prior to reaching 60 earned hours. In addition to the 60 hours, a student must have earned a minimum GPA of 2.25 in the lower division subset as well as an overall minimum GPA of 2.25. A student not meeting the overall standards but with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 upon appeal, will be reviewed by the college admission committee for admission to the upper division on an individual basis.

Students wishing to major in accounting have additional requirements that must be met to enter this major/area of specialization. To be admitted to the accounting area of specialization, students must earn a minimum GPA of 2.750 in the introductory-level college accounting courses, including a grade of C (2.0) or higher in both BUAD 2040 and 2050 or equivalent courses, and an overall higher education minimum GPA of 2.750 in all prior college-level courses.  Any appeals are reviewed by the Accounting Department.

The Degree Audit Report (DARS) is available online through UToledo's Web Portal, and also available from the Office of Student Retention and Academic Success in the Savage Business Complex Rm 3130. It is an up to date computerized list of degree requirements and the courses a student has already completed.

**Please note that these check sheets and plans of study do not replace the knowledge and expertise of the professional academic advisors in the College of Business and Innovation. Although the primary responsibility for degree completion rests with the student, we encourage students to use these guides in addition to regular consultations with an academic advisor. 

**Not all electives in a major are offered online. For further information, please contact your advisor.

Bachelor's of Applied Organizational Technology (BAOT) 

The BAOT degree is the equivalent of two additional years of full-time study (2 + 2 program). It is highly recommended for students who have received a more technically focused associate's degree. The BAOT is ideal for those employed in the globally technical economy that are seeking organizational careers.

COBI Associate's Degree Programs

The College of Business and Innovation offers several associate's degrees and certificate options for students seeking a relevant and practical knowledge base while continuing to work full-time. The College's associate's degrees and certificates are flexible and can be completed online.
