What You'll Learn


This program emphasizes both behavioral and technical approaches to manage today's fast-paced organizations.

As a BUSO major, you'll learn how to:

  • budget, organize, plan, hire, direct, control, and otherwise manage various organizations
  • manage resources at the individual, group, and organizational levels

You'll also learn about technology and its use in the development of management information systems for small and large businesses.

Course Delivery Methods


Complete your Bachelor of Science in Business Administration in as little as four semesters (not including summers).

Courses are offered solely online with some in-person business engagement opportunities.

Online learning is a combination of synchronous—meaning students attend together, in real time—and asynchronous—meaning students can learn anytime, anywhere.

Who Should Enroll


This program is ideal for students who have already completed the first two years of lower-division general education requirements.

Students who are well suited for this program include working adults, parents, and long-distance learners. 

Cohorts & Advisers


Students in this program will be enrolled in a cohort (BUSO) with specific courses designated only for this cohort.

BUSO cohort members are guaranteed a seat in all required courses and won't have to compete for seats with residential students on the main Winona campus.

Students may enter the BUSO cohort in either Fall or Spring semesters and may be full- or part-time.

Dedicated advisers will guide students through the program, both in-person and virtually, depending on student preference.
