First step: Find your way onto the University site and the Business Department site
http://www.apu.edu/sbm/

There are a few degree programs listed here. Select one eg. Business Management
http://www.apu.edu/sbm/undergraduate/businessmanagement/

Then look at the right menu for “requirements” http://www.apu.edu/sbm/undergraduate/businessmanagement/requirements/

So now you can see how many courses and the total number of units you will need.
Toward the bottom is a really important note:

****Note: This information is current for the 2012–13 academic year; however, all stated academic information is subject to change. Please refer to the current Academic Catalog for more information. For additional information, please contact the appropriate office. ****

This is important to know. Every University has a Catalog and this is the document that tells you what you need to take for your major and for your general education requirements.

The next thing to figure out is how the University organizes its academic calendar and also how courses get scheduled from one term to another. This will impact how fast you can get through the program. http://www.apu.edu/calendar/academic/

Other really big factors include your own workload… are you working a job? How much time can you give over to your studies? Are you the type of person who can handle the minimum full load or perhaps take an extra class or two in your schedule. Most college classes require 2-3 hours to study, read, do assignments for every 1 hour spent in the classroom.

Looks like they offer Fall and Spring semesters (12 units would be full time, but 15 or 16 units would get you through faster). They also offer a May intensive term (4 weeks long) and 1 or 2 Summer terms (6 weeks long). During the shorter terms students generally only take 1 or possibly two classes. This is because cramming a full semester worth of information/learning into 4-6 weeks is intense! If you also work a job, this schedule may not be workable for you.

So with all these factors, its pretty hard to say how long it will take you. This is true of any bachelor’s degree program really. I remember at the beginning of my time in college 4 years seemed like forever and I DID NOT want to spend any more than that. I ended up changing majors and not always able to handle more than 12 units and working some summers. It took me 5 1/2 years to complete my BA in liberal studies. I then worked for a year and a half before entering graduate school for 1 1/2 years. More than 20 years later, I can say that the time went by VERY fast! It doesn’t really hurt to take your time, explore your options and begin your career a few years later than you think is ideal.

All the best to you and prayers for a good decision and happy outcome.
