Yes, it's right there on their website. There are also others (HR & General Management).

And, for all of them, it says: "Courses for this concentration may include:" Which means you can use other courses for the concentration.

Will they allow the below courses for Project Management concentration? Currently, for Project management concentration, only 1 course is available through alternate credit.

MGT 350: Entrepreneurship --> Business 121: Introduction to Entrepreneurship
MGT 360: Small Business --> Business 321: Small Business Management
COM 326: Organizational Communication --> Business 313: Organizational Communication

To get a PM concentration, you have to take PM courses.  So I'm going to say that since none of these has anything to do with PM, they won't approve them.

Why don't you just do a General concentration instead?

Employers care more about a PMP and PMI-ACP certification, over a BSBA in project management. Recommendation. Get whatever version of BSBA you can obtain with alternative credits and then get your certifications in PMP and PMI-ACP.

The good news is, if you get your PM cert from PMI, it counts for 9cr of UL coursework - those 3 exact classes.  So you're much better off to get the PM cert, then transfer it into COSC for your concentration.
