UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The College of Business Administration (CBA) offers a broad professional education in Business. The Bachelor of Science program offers students a choice of 12 concentrations by which they may focus their goals. Additionally, the CBA's Business Honors program provides an alternative path to its most capable students to prepare them for management opportunities. All students must choose a concentration to complete their requirements for the baccalaureate degree. Students who are uncertain about which concentration to choose are encouraged to select the General Management concentration, as it is the most comprehensive. The structure of the General Management concentration also provides an overlap with the other concentrations, thus making changes in focus possible. Students who wish a more customized program may elect to complete the requirements for additional concentrations as well. For example, students may elect dual concentrations such as General Management and Management of Human Resources and Organizational Behavior, or Accountancy Information Systems and Management Information Systems. For more information about program options, please visit our website at mybiz.csus.biz.

The College also offers Minors in Business Administration, Knowledge Management Technology, Management of Human Resources and Organizational Behavior, Marketing, Real Estate and Land Use Affairs, and Risk Management and Insurance. A Minor in Business Administration is valuable to the student majoring in another area who wishes to supplement his/her knowledge with a business background.

Note: The use of the words “business administration” throughout this section refers to courses designated as Accountancy (ACCY), Decision Sciences (DS), Entrepreneurship (ENTR), Finance (FIN), General Management (GM), Human Resources/Organizational Behavior (HROB), International Business (IBUS), Management (MGMT), Management Information Science (MIS), Marketing (MKTG).

Academic Policies and Procedures

The following is a summary of the Policies and Procedures that are unique to the CBA. Students who wish to request deviation from these articulated policies and procedures must petition the CBA Academic Standards Committee. Undergraduate students should submit their petitions to the Undergraduate Business Advising Center (UBAC), Tahoe Hall 1030.  For graduate students enrolled in the EMBA program please contact the Office of the Associate Dean for Graduate and External Programs, Tahoe Hall 2065. All other CBA graduate students should contact the GBAC, Tahoe Hall 1037. The Committee will not hear requests from students that disregard catalog policy. To see the full statement go to web address: www.cba.csus.edu/.

Add/Drop Policies

Students are subject to being administratively dropped from business courses if they fail to meet academic standards for which they have not met the prerequisite requirements as prescribed by the CBA or by Sacramento State.

Rules for adding and/or dropping a course during the first few weeks of a semester differ substantially from the policies in effect after that period of time. Different procedures may apply for undergraduate and graduate students.

Adding Courses: Students normally enroll in courses during the registration period. After the registration period, students may be permitted to add courses only with the approval of the instructor and the Associate Dean for the Undergraduate Program or the Associate Dean for Graduate and External Programs.

Dropping Courses: The requirement for dropping selected courses becomes more difficult as the semester progresses. It is the responsibility of the student to maintain progress in each course in which the student is enrolled. Students who fail to continue in the course without an approved drop will receive a grade of “WU” or “F” for the course. See the Undergraduate Business Advising Center, the Graduate Business Advising Center, or for students enrolled in the EMBA program, please contact the Office of the Associate Dean for Graduate and External Programs for additional information.

Course Repeat Policy

Undergraduate courses used for the CBA’s major requirements may be repeated twice (for a total of three attempts). If the subject course is required and the student has not earned a grade of “A”, “A-”, “B+”, “B”, “B-”, “C+”, “C”, or “C-” in three attempts, the student will be disqualified from the CBA. If the course represents a computer literacy requirement, and the student has not earned a grade of “A”, “A-”, “B+”, “B”, “B-”, “C+”, “C”, “C-”, or “CR” in three attempts, the student will not be allowed to enroll in the course a fourth time. However, the student may be given the opportunity to demonstrate computer literacy by passing the appropriate examination.

Graduate students may repeat only two graduate courses — one at the Foundation level and one at the MBA/MS level.

Reinstatement Policy

Undergraduate Business Administration majors who have been disqualified from the University will not be allowed to enroll in 100-level business courses until they have been reinstated into the business major. In order for students to qualify to petition for reinstatement into the business administration major, they must be in good standing according to University standards. Undergraduate business students seeking reinstatement to the CBA must reapply to major. Graduate students must complete a Reinstatement Petition (obtained in the Graduate Business Advising Center for for all CBA graduate programs). See the College of Business Administration Web site for information regarding the University Reinstatement Petition or for the CBA Reinstatement Petition. Graduate students must file the petition with the Graduate Business Advising Center, attaching an explanation with relevant documentation supporting their request for reinstatement. The CBA Academic Standards Committee will review the petition.

Note: The only basis for reinstatement is the expectation (supported by evidence provided by the student) that the student is now likely to progress towards the satisfactory completion of the CBA’s degree requirements in a timely manner.

Minimum Grade Requirements

The purpose of this requirement is to assure that all business administration students attain the minimum level of competency in all their coursework required for the business administration degree.

The minimum acceptable grade for any undergraduate course required for the business administration degree is “C-” with the exception of MATH 24 which requires a minimum acceptable grade of "C" or better.

A minimum grade point average of 2.0 (“C”) is required in the Pre-Major courses, Major Core courses, and the Concentration courses presented for the degree.

The minimum acceptable grade for any graduate business course is “C.” No more than two (2) courses with a grade of “C” will be counted for satisfaction of graduate program requirements.

A grade point average of at least 3.0 (“B”) is required in all Graduate Foundation courses taken at Sacramento State and program requirement courses presented for the degree.

Incomplete Grades

Under certain conditions, students may request a grade of “Incomplete.” Students must be passing the course at the time an “Incomplete” is requested. The issuance of an “Incomplete” is appropriate only when required by University policy or in situations such as:

• the student misses a final exam for reasons that are fully justifiable in the eyes of the instructor; or
• the student was granted an extension of time to complete a class assignment.

Except in those cases specifically approved by University policy, the course instructor has sole discretion over what constitutes a fully justifiable reason for an “Incomplete.”

Contract to Finish an Incomplete Grade

A petition for Incomplete Grade must be submitted with both the student's and course instructor's signature to the Office of the Associate Dean for the Undergraduate Program for undergraduate students, and to the Office of the Associate Dean for Graduate and External Programs for graduate students. These offices route the copies to the Undergraduate Business Advising Center, the External Graduate Programs Office, or to the Graduate Programs Office, showing the work to be completed, the basis by which the student's final grade will be determined, the last date for completing the incomplete work, and the grade earned by the student at the time the petition was approved. All “Incomplete” grade petitions must be agreed to by the student, as indicated by the student’s signature and date of signing. The contract must also be signed by the course instructor and approved by the Office of the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Program, or by the Office of the Associate Dean for Graduate and External Programs.

Open University Enrollment

The CBA restricts the enrollment in 100-level business courses through Open University to only six (6) units. The purpose of Open University is to provide opportunity for individuals from the community to enroll in certain courses for purposes of professional development. Matriculating and/or matriculated students in a CBA degree program are not to use Open University. See the Undergraduate Business Advising Center (TAH-1030) for undergraduate courses.

Simultaneous Course Enrollment

Students may not enroll in two or more courses that are offered on the same day and at the same time. In very rare circumstances, and with approval of the course instructors and the Associate Dean for the Undergraduate Program, students may enroll in courses that overlap by no more than 15 minutes.

Currency of Knowledge Requirement

All students must have what is considered “currency of knowledge” in courses they apply towards an earned degree. This applies to both majors and minors within the CBA. Courses that do not satisfy the currency of knowledge requirement must be repeated.

Currency of Course Prerequisites

All current course prerequisites must have been completed within seven years of enrolling in any course having prerequisites. This currency requirement may be waived in cases where more advanced courses in the same area than the listed prerequisites have been completed in the last seven years with a grade of “C-” or better.

Undergraduate Courses

Lower division courses used to satisfy pre-major or minor requirements must have been completed within seven years of the date of admission to the business administration major or minor unless an upper division course in the same area was taken within seven years of the date of graduation. Upper division courses used to satisfy graduation requirements must have been completed within seven years of the date of graduation.

The CBA Academic Standards Committee may grant credit for courses taken beyond the seven year requirement for extensive experience in the area. The burden rests upon the applicant to demonstrate how his/her experience satisfies the requirement of currency.

Graduate Courses

All program requirements, excluding the Foundation courses, must be completed within seven years of the date of expected graduation.

During the admission cycle, courses used to fulfill Foundation course requirements must have been completed within seven years of the date of admission. The CBA Academic Standards Committee, however, may approve currency for Foundation courses taken beyond the seven year requirement if a request is so filed. Waiving of the seven year requirement shall be based on the relevancy, level of responsibility, and duration of the applicant’s work experience. The burden rests upon the applicant to demonstrate how his/her experience satisfies the requirement for currency.

Course Transfer Credit Articulated Courses

The CBA has articulation agreements with a number of community colleges. These agreements stipulate the CBA has agreed that certain identified undergraduate courses are deemed to be “equivalent” between the respective institutions, and therefore credit will be awarded for those courses taken at another (articulated) institution, towards a degree from Sacramento State. Approval of courses submitted for articulation is subject to currency of knowledge stipulations. See the following Web site for an up-to date list of articulated courses: www.assist.org.

Course Transfer Credit Non-Articulated Courses

Courses taken at an AACSB International accredited college of business will be accepted for transfer credit if the course is regarded as equivalent to the course for which credit is requested. Business core courses and concentration courses will not be accepted for transfer credit from programs that are not AACSB International accredited unless taken at institutions that have national or international reputations of high quality programs.

Petitions for equivalency for undergraduate, non-articulated courses must be submitted to the Undergraduate Business Advising Center (UBAC). Petitions for equivalency for graduate, non-articulated courses must be submitted to the Graduate Business Advising Center (GBAC). For all other CBA graduate programs contact the Graduate Programs Office. The CBA Academic Standards Committee will evaluate whether the institution satisfies the requirement of “national or international reputations of high quality programs.” Subsequently, faculty in the appropriate area will make the final determination of course equivalency, e.g., content, method of instruction, method of evaluating students, and/or course duration.

Change of Major

The Change of  Major Petition is used for undergraduate students who entered the University as a Pre-Business Major and have met the requirements to declare business administration as their major, and for students who are declared in another major and wish to declare business administration as their major. Students who wish to minor in business administration must file a Minor Request Petition. Students must complete and return these petitions to the Undergraduate Business Advising Center. The deadline for the fall semester is March 1st; for the spring semester the deadline is October 1st.

Some of these career opportunities may lead to professional certification such as Certified Public Accountants, Certified Internal Auditors, Certified Management Accountants, and Certified Governmental Financial Managers. An Accountancy undergraduate education provides a foundation for entry-level jobs and long-term careers in these areas, giving students familiarity with a range of employment opportunities.

Students may choose either the Marketing Track or the Supply Chain Management Track

The Marketing Track emphasizes the conceptual understanding and development of professional skills essential to marketing-oriented careers in such fields as e-commerce, advertising, public relations, product and service management, retail management, international marketing, marketing research, and sales management. Consideration is given to the roles of marketing in a global economy, in our society, and within both profit and not-for-profit organizations. The study of marketing includes human behavior, communication, entrepreneurship, problem solving, technological innovation, ethics, and environmentalism. For nonbusiness majors, the study of marketing provides a perspective of how organizations can satisfy the needs of their constituencies.

The Supply Chain Management (SCM) Track is concerned with organizations, methods, and processes employed in managing and improving supply chain and operations systems which provide goods or services to fulfill customer needs and wants in both local and global markets in a flexible, adaptable, reliable, cost effective and sustainable manner. Students who select the SCM Track are provided with a well-balanced program of qualitative and quantitative subject matter and should be able to assume first-line staff or management positions in supply chain and operations systems for manufacturing, service, or government organizations.

GRADUATE PROGRAMS

The College of Business Administration offers the following graduate level degree programs:

  • MBA: Master of Business Administration
  • MBA/Finance
  • IMBA: International Master of Business Administration
  • EMBA: Master of Business Administration for Executives
  • MS/Accountancy
  • MSBA/MIS: Master of Science in Business Administration with option in Management Information Systems (currently suspended)
  • MSBA/TAX: Master of Science in Business Administration with option in Taxation (currently suspended)

For instructional purposes, the "case method" is used extensively in most graduate courses in the College of Business Administration or, more precisely, analysis of problems in the setting of an actual business or other type of organization. Experience has demonstrated the value of this technique in developing powers of critical thought and acuity in visualizing alternative courses of action. Improved judgment and skill in communicating ideas are concomitant benefits.

Discussion within class is encouraged, and students are urged to pursue their investigation of issues and solutions to problems in small informal group meetings outside of class. Lectures, collateral reading, special research, and other instructional tools supplement case studies.

The MBA program has been developed to provide an education that is extensive and broadening rather than intensive or specialized within a limited functional area. The MBA is intended to improve the participant's capacity for effective decision making, to facilitate his/her professional growth and development for increasing managerial responsibility, and to broaden his/her knowledge and understanding of management in the areas of:

  • Accountancy
  • Finance
  • International Management
  • Management Information Systems
  • Supply Chain Management

The MBA is also appropriate preparation for teaching business education subjects at the community college level. Students are encouraged to obtain further guidance from the school districts in which they will teach.

The greater Sacramento region is about to witness a revolution in its business leadership as it transforms itself into a major metropolitan growth center. Our EMBA program is designed to help just that as well as help the region redefine the business community. The new millennium is about making choices to make our lives easier and more enriched. New technological advances are happening everyday that provide us with a better quality of life and the opportunity to have more flexibility than ever before. That is where the Master of Business Administration for Executives (EBMA) Program at Sacramento State comes in. The College of Business Administration recognizes the need among working professionals to advance their careers in a flexible and supportive environment that has not been met in the Sacramento region ever before. We believe that business executives deserve to have an EMBA program tailored to their unique needs.

A key consideration for the EMBA Program is that it is tailored to the needs of full-time working professionals. The program is designed to meet the needs of highly engaged working executives and managers. The entire program can be completed within 15 months. The EMBA courses are only available through the College of Continuing Education.

The MS/ACCY program was developed in response to new developments in the accounting and business worlds. Increasingly, accountants who hold undergraduate degrees in accounting seek advanced degrees as the complexity of the accounting field increases. Accounting professionals are involved with an ever-widening range of careers including public accounting, corporate accounting, income tax accounting, not-for-profit accounting, and government accounting. Significant changes in the regulatory climate, including the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, have increased the need for graduate level education. One result is a heightened interest in forensic accounting, fraud detection, and information system security. The 150 credit-hour education requirement established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) also has significantly increased the demand for graduate education in accounting. The MS/ACCY program helps to qualify students to sit for professional accounting examinations that lead to credentials such as the CPA (Certified Public Accountant) and the CMA (Certified Management Accountant) designations. The MS/ACCY program uses an online platform to deliver a completely web-based degree. The MS/ACCY courses are only available through the College of Continuing Education.

The Master of Science in Business Administration with an option in Management Information Systems (MSBA/MIS) program presents to its students a balanced blend of technical and managerial topics that develops and broadens their technical and intellectual skill sets as well as enhances their problem-solving and critical thinking abilities. The curriculum of the MSBA/MIS has been designed to graduate students who can successfully function as information technology managers or professionals with the potential for executive positions. The program focuses on development students in four areas:

  • Technology Management: Our MSBA/MIS graduates will perform evaluation, adoption, and maintenance of information technology applications to meet short-term and long-term organizational goals.
  • Technical Knowledge and Skills: Our MSBA/MIS graduates will integrate information technology theories, conceptual models, techniques, and tools in different technical areas to meet existing and emerging task requirements in an adaptive and innovative manner.
  • Business Functional Analyses: Our MSBA/MIS graduates will perform research and analyses to identify business functional requirements, constraints, models, and processes as input to facilitate information technology application development.
  • Leadership Knowledge and Skills: Our MSBA/MIS graduates will possess leadership knowledge and skills to perform proactive planning for effective information technology utilization in changing environments.

The MSBA/TAX program is a highly specialized and intensive program designed for those seeking a career in taxation. This program gives a practical exposure to the critical aspects of taxation with an orientation toward planning and strategy, and is supplemented by compliance knowledge where relevant. The benefits of an MSBA/TAX degree are practical and economical. Many companies pay out more than 50% of their profits in taxes, making proper tax planning critical to maximizing the bottom line.  Law firms and accounting consultants need this type of training to increase their clients’ bottom lines, and in government offices, this type of training ensures that tax laws are being complied with and properly enforced. The program gives a practical exposure to the critical aspects of taxation with an orientation toward planning and strategy, and is supplemented by compliance knowledge where relevant. The MSBA/TAX program uses an online platform to deliver a completely web-based degree. The MSBA/TAX courses are only available through the College of Continuing Education.

Admission Requirements

All applicants for post-baccalaureate degree programs in Business must have earned a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited four-year institution of higher learning or the equivalent from a foreign institution. Admission requirements are different for each of the CBA Graduate Programs. The specific admission requirements for each degree program are listed within the program descriptions under “Admission Information” on the following pages. The College of Business Administration reserves the rights to revise its admissions standards and to limit enrollment in its graduate degree programs.

Applicants who are approved for admission will receive a letter from the Office of Graduate Studies informing them that they have been admitted as a Pre-Master or classified graduate student. Included with that correspondence will be an Acceptance Form which the new graduate student must then return to the CBA Graduate Business Advising Center (GBAC), Tahoe Hall 1037.

Curriculum

The MBA program requires 33 to 54 semester units of graduate study beyond a four-year baccalaureate degree, depending upon the extent of the student's prior academic preparation in Business Administration. Each student must satisfy the prerequisites, foundation courses, and program curriculum for the degree program.

Prerequisites

Prior to enrolling in the Foundation courses, students must be proficient in mathematics, statistics, and computer usage:

  • Mathematics: at least one semester of calculus is strongly preferred;
  • Statistics: an introductory course in probability and statistics; and
  • Computer usage: ability to use common personal computer hardware and software, particularly word processing programs, spreadsheet programs, and internet browsers.

The faculty will assume that all MBA students have these proficiencies. A student may gain the necessary proficiencies in many ways: through coursework, review classes, self-study; or experience. No proficiency courses can count as credit towards program requirements.

Writing Placement for Graduate Students Exam

All graduate students are expected to have demonstrated writing proficiency at the undergraduate level as prescribed by the California State University System. Applicants for admission to graduate programs who have not fulfilled this requirement will be required to take the Writing Placement for Graduate Students (WPG) or take a Graduate Writing Intensive (GWI) course in their discipline within the first two semesters of coursework at California State University, Sacramento or secured approval for a WPG waiver. A student may be eligible for a WPG Waiver based on selected criteria (obtain a list of criteria and a WPG waiver from the Graduate Business Advising Center). Graduate students are required to meet this requirement before advancing to candidacy. No exceptions will be made to this policy.

Foundation Courses

The Foundation courses provide an academic background in the various disciplines of business. The MBA degree program is built upon this common background. Foundation courses should be taken after the student has attained the required entry proficiencies (prerequisites) and should be completed prior to taking program requirement courses. The Foundation courses are available through the Sacramento State College of Continuing Education.

A student who has a baccalaureate degree or a minor in Business Administration from an AACSB-INTERNATIONAL accredited university may have completed all or most of the Foundation requirements. However, the student will be required to take certain Foundation courses if she/he:

1) has not previously completed the comparable undergraduate course(s) for academic credit from an AACSB-INTERNATIONAL accredited institution or from a high quality program that has a "national or international reputation";
2) has earned less than an overall 3.0 ("B") grade point average (GPA) in the comparable undergraduate courses presented for waiver of required courses;
3) has received a "C" or lower grade in the comparable undergraduate course;
4) cannot demonstrate currency in these courses (7 year limit); or
5) has completed the bachelor's degree at a foreign institution.

Courses taken at AACSB-INTERNATIONAL accredited colleges of business will be accepted for transfer credit if the course is regarded as equivalent to the course for which credit is requested. Business Foundation courses and Core courses will not be accepted for transfer credit from programs that are not AACSB-INTERNATIONAL accredited unless taken at institutions that have national or international reputations of high quality programs.

Please contact the Graduate Business Advising Center (GBAC) Tahoe Hall 1037 to request petitions for equivalency for graduate, non-articulated courses. The CBA Academic Standards Committee will evaluate whether the institutions satisfy the requirement of "national or international reputations of high quality programs." Subsequently, faculty in the appropriate department will make the final determination for course equivalency, e.g., content, method of instruction, method of evaluating students, and/or course duration. To find out if your university is AACSB accredited go to www.AACSB.edu.

Pre-Master students who are registered in the last two Foundation courses must file an Application for Classification with the Graduate Business Advising Center (GBAC) Tahoe Hall 1037, to be able to enroll in the courses designated as Program Requirements. The student's academic status will be reviewed to assure that he/she meets the necessary criteria to be accepted as a classified graduate student.

A GPA of at least 3.0 ("B") is required in all Foundation courses taken at Sacramento State, and program requirement courses presented for the degree.

Foundation Courses (0-11 units)

The foundation courses are available through the College of Continuing Education after acceptance into one of the CBA Graduate Programs.

Note: To be completed after the student has demonstrated the required entry proficiencies and must be completed prior to taking Program Requirements in any of the Master's programs.

All of the Foundation Courses below are required for the MBA and the MSBA/MIS programs. MSBA/Taxation and MS/Accountancy programs only require ECON 204, MBA 201, and MBA 203. The EMBA program does not require Foundation coursework.

A graduate student may request a challenge for waiver of a College of Business Administration foundation or core course if it at least one of the following conditions is met:

  • The student has taken an equivalent class elsewhere, subject to the GPA requirement in CBA academic policy. For core classes, the equivalent class must be at the graduate level; for the foundation classes, the equivalent class can be taken at the undergraduate level.
  • The student has achieved appropriate professional or academic qualification.
  • The student has appropriate professional work experience.

It is the responsibility of a student to provide sufficient documentation to support a waiver challenge application.

Advancement to Candidacy

A student's program requirements are governed by the catalog in effect at the time one is accepted into and begins graduate school or by the catalog in effect at the time advancement to candidacy is approved.

Prior to enrolling in Culminating Requirements, a student must advance to candidacy. Initiation of advancement procedures is the responsibility of the student. The application to advance must be filed no later than the semester prior to enrollment in culminating experience requirement.

Eligibility to advance to candidacy requires satisfactory scholastic achievement, presentation of a plan of graduate study, and demonstration of writing proficiency. A classified graduate student in Business Administration may apply to the Graduate Business Advising Center (GBAC) for advancement to candidacy for the Master's degree after s/he has completed at least 12 units of the program requirements beyond the Foundation requirements. Students with a GPA deficiency or who have not fulfilled the Writing Placement for Graduate Students Requirement (WPG) cannot advance to candidacy.

EMBA Admission Criteria and Candidate Selection

Selecting candidates for admissions is a very critical decision for the EMBA program. That is why we have adopted a system that takes into account three primary areas of evaluation when making admission decisions:

  1. Professional Experience (length, breadth, and depth of professional and managerial experience, and potential for career development);
  2. Academic Qualifications (a baccalaureate degree from an institution accredited by a regional accrediting association, previous graduate level coursework if available, and performance on the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT); and
  3. Additional Relevant Criteria (Potential contribution to learning experience of the program, maturity and motivation, ability and willingness to commit the required time and energy to the program, community service and professional activities, and support of an applicant's employing organization).

A candidate with good academic qualifications and a solid, but short, work record will have the same opportunity as someone with a strong, long, work record, but who has been out of school for awhile. We believe candidates who have successful professional careers, solid education, and additional relevant qualifications will excel in our EMBA Program.

We do require that our candidates have a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution. We also recommend applicants have at least 3 to 5 years of professional work experience. Professional work experience will provide the applicants and their peers with a more stimulating learning environment.
