Attention: Cleveland State University has recently undertaken a university-wide initiative to modify curricula by replacing four-credit courses with three-credit courses and instituting 120-credit hour limits as the standard for undergraduate degree completion. This initiative resulted in a detailed curriculum review of all BBA majors, including the major of Business Administration, which is now called General Business. Due to this change CSU and the Monte Ahuja College of Business has redesigned all our BBA majors and the redesigned programs no longer allows for 200 level business courses from a community college to be used toward 300 level major elective or major core course work. In addition, the Monte Ahuja College of Business can only accept community college 100/200 level business related courses as direct transfer course work toward our AACSB accredited BBA program, which has been approved within the CSU-Lakeland Transfer Guide. So the prior BBA Fast Track program will end as of Summer 2014; however, all students with CSU catalog right dates of Summer 2014 and older will be allowed to finish their BBA Degree – Business Administration program using the old BBA Fast Track program requirements.
