College of Business Administration

Program Description

The College of Business Administration (COB) offers a broad professional education in Business. The Bachelor of Science program offers students a choice of 9 concentrations by which they may focus their goals. Additionally, the COB'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. For information about program options, please visit our website at: Undergraduate Programs | Sacramento State (

The College also offers Minors in Business Administration, 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.
