Program Information

Mondays only! Apply for FREE until November 30, 2017. $25 per-class textbook discount* for new students this spring!

Bemidji State University (BSU) is located in north-central Minnesota, but the BSU Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration (Management or Marketing emphasis) is available at the Anoka-Ramsey Community College Coon Rapids Campus! We call it the Metro Area Business Administration program or MABA.

This innovative, flexible, and highly affordable B.S. in Business Administration includes:

  • Take classes on-campus in Coon Rapids during the week from BSU professors, with BSU support staff on-hand.
  • Very low costs, and an easy transfer process when compared to other options.
  • 40 upper-division BSU credits are taught by full-time in-residence faculty here in Coon Rapids.
  • Choose the Management or Marketing emphasis area.
  • Start in the Spring or Fall semester!

Students admitted to this program will complete 60 credits beyond the credits required for an A.S. degree. 20 of those credits are offered by Anoka-Ramsey at their low tuition rate. The other 40 credits are offered by BSU at their current tuition rate.
