The Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) degree completion program allows students who have taken the proper prerequisites to transfer their credits into East Carolina University.

  • General Business
  • Management
  • Management Information Systems, and
  • Operations & Supply Chain Management.

The Master of Business Administration (MBA) program has been fully online since 2004 and is indistinguishable from the on-campus program.

Important Note to Residents Outside North Carolina:

Admission of applicants outside the State of North Carolina to an online degree, certificate or individual online course offered by East Carolina University, is dependent on ECU’s ability to secure authorization from the applicant’s state of residence if such authorization is required.

East Carolina University delivers online education programs and courses throughout the United States and internationally. All programs have been approved by the University of North Carolina General Administration.


Many states have prescribed an “authorization” process for out-of-state institutions delivering online programs to its state residents to ensure quality post-secondary education, to preserve the integrity of an academic degree, and to instil greater consumer protection for its student citizens.

East Carolina University has taken steps to protect its students and operations through nationwide compliance: by participation in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA); obtaining authorization, approval, exemptions and waivers;

or confirming that East Carolina University can operate without such authorization because the state’s laws do not pertain to a public institution, to an accredited institution, or to the ECU’s activities in that state.

Who can be your proctor?

To become a proctor, the individual cannot be a relative or friend of the student taking the exam and must hold one of the following occupational titles:

  • School superintendent, principal, assistant principal, or other administrators
  • Embassy education officer, military base/station education officer, fire chief or captain
  • Local college testing centre staff or administration
  • Commercial testing centre
  • Full-time school or public librarian, or full-time tester
  • Overseas (Military) Non-Commissioned Officer in Charge or Officer in Charge

For each type above, the proctor must provide a professional e-mail account and physical work address to verify her/his title.

Graduate level UNC System students who hold one of the above titles may proctor only if they are part of a formal proctoring office run by an administrator and staffed (in part) by graduate assistants; they cannot proctor students in their degree program.

As well, they must provide a verifiable professional e-mail account and physical work address. Information about the ECU Proctoring Center is available at https://www.ecu.edu/acad/deproctoring/
