They didn't do this randomly. Buzzfeed had a list of Ivy League institutions that had already committed to this same policy. On Twitter, they were asked a few times by Alumni if Binghamton University would also follow suit. They quickly followed up and posted this message.
Oh I know it; this is just the first time I saw it posted on Twitter. Cornell just posted their statement an hour ago.
Trying to inform anybody here who wasn't already aware.
I don't think you are making much sense, friend-o.
Alrighty then 🙂
I never understood why it’s not a BBA
I mean there's a fair amount of quantitiative stuff with the calc requirement, FIN 311 obviously, stats, economics, excel/access stuff etc. Not to say it comes close to actual science degrees
BA vs BS generally comes down to the number of courses/credit hours required. BA's are less rigorous and fall somewhere between minoring and fulfilling BS requirements.
Many schools offer the option to get either, such as how the ECON department offers the regular BA, along with a few options for BS specializations.
SOM students have to take a minimum of 15 management courses which is within the norm of a BS
