If you’re considering a journey back into the classroom or hoping to be more competitive in the job market, Hamline University can help.

The Hamline School of Business is now offering a degree program geared to the adult learner. It is a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA), combining practice and theory to satisfy goals of students who are returning to the classroom after time away from their studies.

“To be competitive in today’s job market, a student who earns a college degree from Hamline University, which is ranked among the top ten masters level institutions in the Midwest for its strong academic reputation, clearly has an advantage," said Hamline University President Linda Hanson. “This program will help working professionals and those returning to the workplace advance in their current career or enter the job market with the knowledge, practical skills, and connections to achieve their goals.”

Courses are offered at Hamline’s convenient Minneapolis location at 1600 Utica Avenue in St. Louis Park, near the intersection of I-394 and Highway 100.

“The degree program is offered in an area that is a hub of business activity, allowing for powerful educational collaborations and networking opportunities for our students,” said Dr. Julian Schuster, dean of the School of Business. “We know how important real-world experiences are to employers; our program provides the kinds of hands-on work opportunities and partnerships that will make our graduates immediately marketable.”

Classes meet weeknights from 5:30–9:30 p.m. along with one additional Saturday class per term. In addition, some classes are offered partially or entirely online. The curriculum is structured in 8-week terms so that students may plan their schedule months in advance. Six terms are offered in a twelve-month period.

Applications are being accepted for fall term. Tuition for the BBA adult degree completion is $425 per credit. Financial aid is available. Click here for more information on the program or to sign up for an upcoming information session.
