         Business Administration, B.S.: 4-year sequence   , 3-year sequence    


The Business Administration program at UW-Stout is unique in that it blends business with technology. The program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). It has a solid foundation of general-liberal studies and covers the functional areas of marketing, manufacturing, finance, personnel, accounting and law. It also requires comprehensive courses in policies, management information systems, leadership, and the legal and ethical aspects of management. The unique aspect of requiring a minor allows a student to tap one or more of UW-Stout’s unique connections to business and industry areas such as property management, construction, human resource management, enterprise technology, logistics management, loss control, packaging, quality management, training, retail management, hospitality and tourism management, and many more to complement the business program.

Keeping pace with the demands of the ever-changing business environment, the business degree at UW-Stout has added a concentration in supply chain management. Recognizing that this is a specialized skill that is being driven by globalization, cost control and increased customer service levels and high-quality requirements; the business program has reached out to give our students an opportunity to specialize in this critical area of commerce. Supply chain management encompasses all logistics management activities. Since this area of business integrates supply and demand management within and across companies and represents approximately 70 to 80 percent of the cost structure of a typical company; it is necessary to operate an efficient supply chain in order to compete. Thus, businesses have deemed this to be a critical business function and skill.
