Major Requirements (65-71 units)

Students must select a concentration. The following courses, or their approved transfer equivalents, are required of all candidates for this degree.
Because most Business Administration course work completed over ten years ago is outdated, students must consult with an advisor in the Student Advisement and Service Center to ascertain whether courses taken ten or more years ago will need to be repeated. The Associate Dean in the College of Business Administration and Public Policy may waive the requirement to repeat outdated course work if there is evidence that student knowledge is current. Such evidence may consist of recent successful completion of more advanced course work in the specific discipline or satisfactory completion of designated national examinations.

Admission to the Business Administration major requires completion of all lower division Business Administration core courses with minimum grades of “C”. All new majors are classified as “pre-business majors” until the requirements are met. Upper division advanced and concentration courses are available only to “Business Administration” majors.
