The Business and Economics Core
All Bachelor of Science in Business students must complete a core set of required courses within business and economics. In addition to 25 credit hours of 100- and 200-level courses, this core includes 19 hours of upper-level (300- and 400-level) courses.
Students must select and complete at least one concentration. A total of 24 credit hours are required to fulfill one concentration. To complete two concentrations, students must complete all required courses for both concentrations, and at least 12 credit hours must be distinct to each.
In addition to the general-education, business/economics core and concentration components, students may need to complete additional elective courses to achieve the total number of 1) credit hours and 2) 300- and 400-level credit hours required for degree completion. These elective courses may be carefully selected in pursuit of a minor, second concentration, or internship.
