Business Administration (BA For Adult Students)

The Bachelor of Arts in Professional Studies with a major in Business Administration (BAPS) program is designed for adult students who aim to advance to leadership or managerial positions in the workforce. BAPS offers a practical business curriculum that provides exposure to a variety of functional areas such as technology, project management, marketing and operations.

Based on transferable credit or credit earned through an assessment of your prior learning from personal and professional experience, you may be able to earn your degree in two years. 

Professors are leaders in their field and are committed to teaching and mentoring adult students, and we provide dedicated adult student advisors to provide the roadmap and resources you’ll need to succeed in the program and support once you’ve graduated.

You may take courses online or at DePaul’s Loop Campus during the evenings, or a combination of both.​​
