Specific Admission Requirements
All undergraduate business majors (accounting, business management and economics) take the Business Core. The Core prepares business majors with general business knowledge and skills. The Core also provides students with an understanding of and appreciation for the intellectual discipline needed for successful completion of a business major.
These courses provide students with the common body of knowledge needed for imaginative and responsible citizenship and leadership roles in business and society, domestically and globally. The Business Core is designed to provide students with the opportunity to integrate their educational experiences in business within a specific discipline and across disciplines.
An overall GPA of 2.000 is required in General Education Skills Component courses. The Hasan School of Business prerequisite course requirement is a D, so that a student may progress to the next course. All business majors are required to earn a C or better in Business Core courses and in 300/400-level major courses to fulfill degree requirements. In addition, students must have completed the 100/200-level Business Core courses prior to enrolling in 300/400-level business courses. Additional prerequisites for Business Core courses and major courses are specified in the Course Descriptions section of the catalog. Business Core courses are listed alphabetically by prefix. Academic Planning Sheets are available in HSB.
Independent Studies, Directed Studies, Internships, and Special Projects will not be substituted for core or required courses. They may count as electives.
