Business and Administration

The Business and Administration program at Southern Illinois University incorporates 60 credit hours covering the core business components of finance, management, and marketing. Program courses are divided into 8-week blocks typically offered as “course pairs” – this allows full-time students to take 4 courses each semester, but to focus on just 2 courses at any given time.

Typically, full-time students can complete the online Business and Administration program in 24 months, over 6 semesters. However, the flexibility of the program allows students to complete the program in as little as 18 months, or to take courses on a part-time basis as well.
