The general business major includes courses selected from various academic disciplines within the Nelson Rusche College of Business . The program is designed for students who are limited by time and distance in their options for completing the B.B.A. The B.B.A. at SFA is fully accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International, the premier accreditation agency for programs in business.

Teacher Certification

Effective fall 2016, the general business major with an emphasis in teacher certification is no longer available at the undergraduate level.
