A partnership with USG public institutions, eMajor provides quality, affordable, high-demand post-secondary degrees and credentials that address the workplace needs of Georgia and beyond. The eMajor program is supported by the USG’s eCampus service unit, which also supports the state’s eCore program. Most eMajor degrees are offered in collaboration between multiple USG institutions. The BBA eMajor at Georgia Southwestern, however, is one of only two programs to be offered exclusively from one school.

The BBA degree program is ideal for students who wish to take advantage of online courses and for working professionals, military members, transfer students and returning students seeking alternative routes to degree completion. Additionally, through GSW’s Prior Learning Assessment program, students are able to earn credits for prior learning and reduce the time it takes them to graduate. Ultimately, students can earn the same degree in management, marketing, accounting or human resource management as traditional, on-campus students

Upon completion of an Associate Degree in Business from any institution in the University System of Georgia, students can transfer with ease into the BBA at GSW and can continue on toward their bachelor’s in a convenient online format.

Two ways to learn, on-campus or online

The Georgia Southwestern School of Business offers a Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing. Marketing is the activity, set of institutions, and processes for creating, communicating, delivering, and exchanging offerings that have value for customers, clients, partners, and society at large. As the marketplace continues to become more global and crowded, organizations need to understand how to find and partner with customers and other businesses to grow relationships while also following a strategy to maintain a competitive advantage over competitors and deliver desired outcomes.

Students who major in Marketing at GSW will leave the program with a solid understanding of these concepts along with an understanding of consumer and business behavior. In addition, students will also learn to develop successful partnerships with other companies. Methods to achieve this other than traditional classwork are internships, business clubs, mentorships, cases, and other marketing-related projects.

Two ways to learn, on-campus or online

 A Human Resources Management degree from Georgia Southwestern is intended to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of human resource functions – such as resource planning, recruitment and selection of employees, training and career development, labor relations, performance management, compensation, and development of policy and strategy in private and public-sector settings.  You’ll also explore the ways that employment law, labor relations and diversity issues can intersect and affect a company’s culture and ultimately its competitive advantage.

You will have the opportunity to participate in real-life projects and experiences that put into practice the concepts that are discussed in class.   Hands-on projects will challenge you to draw from your classwork, and from other courses in the curriculum, in order to deliver a practical and effective product. In our capstone course you will get to present your project to working HR professionals for realistic feedback before you begin your career. We work closely with the Society of Human Resource Management to align our courses with employer expectations and required competencies, so we will teach you the exact skills employers tell us they want.

Through your coursework, you will learn how to:

  • Apply business knowledge, reflective practices, and ethical leadership skills that drive learning and self-improvement
  • Develop and conduct an interview for real entry level jobs, and make recommendations to the interviewees designed to help them improve their skill set.
  • Apply knowledge of human behavior, labor relations, and current laws and regulations to produce a working environment that is safe, fair, and compliant with regulationsApplyNow
  • Create, implement, and assess training, development, and rewards programs that foster employee and organizational learning and development
  • Recognize the diversity of cultures and worldviews that inform human behavior and respond constructively to differences in workplaces, communities, and organizations
  • Create and administer performance management systems
  • Identify and use technology to research, collect, analyze, and interpret data and effectively communicate information in a professional manner

Is HR the right fit for me?

  • Working with many types of professionals: HR professionals work closely with people at every stage of their careers.
  • Variety: There is no typical day in HR. You’ll likely be working on a variety of tasks, from staffing a booth at a recruitment fair to leading a training class.
  • Challenges: HR is an evolving science and art. There are always new strategies, technologies and skills to learn and improve upon.
  • Focus on the big picture: HR professionals participate in long-range planning, with insider views on how the entire organization works.
  • Flexibility: HR professionals are needed by businesses of every size, in every industry. You can put your skills and knowledge to work just about anywhere. Attracting the most qualified employees and matching them to the jobs for which they are best suited (and then keeping them) is important for the success of any organization. Conversely, reducing redundancy or removing workers who are no longer working towards corporate goals is also an important function in human resources management.
