Gain a broad-base of knowledge in communications, finance, operations, marketing and strategy.


With JBU Online's Business Administration program, you can learn on your own time alongside your peers. We keep our online classes small so that you can interact with your professor throughout each course to maximize your learning. Our online business program is focused on helping you understand the global economy from wherever you are in the world.

All JBU business programs are accredited or are candidates for accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), ensuring that you’ll receive a quality business education while enjoying the convenience of online courses. For more information about accreditation and a list of accredited programs, click here.

5 Things to Know About Business Administration Online:

  1. Classes are offered in 8-week terms with two terms per semester.
  2. You can choose whether to be a full-time student or a part-time student and finish your degree at your own pace. Most students enroll in 12 hours per semester (two terms) and finish in 18-24 months.
  3. Online BA courses are compressed, which means that you'll learn the same amount of content that you would in a traditional 16-week course during an 8-week term.
  4. Your classes are available from wherever you are, so long as you have internet access.
  5. Assignments are due weekly, and students are expected to be active in the online course at least three times per week.
