The Ross BBA curriculum is designed to give you a holistic view of business with the perspective of a general manager, and therefore doesn’t offer specific majors. But, about half of your classes take place at other schools or colleges on campus, giving you the freedom and flexibility to pursue a dual degree, minor, or a topic you’re passionate about. There are still countless ways to customize your studies and specialize in a particular area of business.
Discover and Pursue Your Passions
If you have other strong academic interests that you want to complement your business degree, you can pursue a dual degree. You must be admitted into both degree programs independently.
