In all cases, students fulfill a 40-credit Business core curriculum and also complete courses required for their specific Business major. It is expected that students who complete the program will possess skills in critical thinking, oral and written communication, teamwork and ethics.

Admission to Major

Acceptance as a major in business is based on overall academic performance and on performance in selected courses. Details of admissions criteria may be obtained from the Office of the School of Business.

Business Core Curriculum (All Business Majors)

The School of Business offers six undergraduate degree programs: Accounting, Finance, General Business, International Business, Marketing, and Management.  Students in each Business major must complete a 40-credit core curriculum, in which a minimum grade of C- is required for credit toward the major (with the exception noted in the Accounting major).

Building on this core curriculum, students in each of the six majors complete specialized courses. A minimum grade of C- is required for credit toward the major.

Double Major

An undergraduate student may choose to have two majors by meeting the following requirements:

  • The core courses apply to both majors.
  • Students must take all "Required Courses" for both majors. If there is an overlap in this category between the two majors, then the common course(s) will apply to both majors.
  • If a course is required for one major and an elective for the second major, then that course should be counted toward the major that requires the course(s).
  • The second business major must have at least 15 credits of coursework over and above that of the first business major.
  • If there are not enough courses in the list of electives for either of the majors, students should see the Dean.
  • Students will receive one degree with the names of the two majors on the transcript.
