Haub School of Business

Business Administration


In recognition that students may want to study in any of the departments in the Haub School of Business (HSB), students majoring in Business administration can choose courses from any HSB department.

Due to the interdisciplinary nature of this degree, students majoring in Business Administration can NOT double major or minor within the Haub School of Business.  A double major or minor in the College of Arts and Sciences would be permitted, with the appropriate permissions from the College of Arts and Sciences.

Major Courses (6 courses)
(For prerequisites, see course descriptions of the upper division courses)

Two (2) upper division courses from three different areas, choosing among: Accounting, Decision and System Sciences, Finance, Food Marketing, Management, Marketing and Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Marketing. These courses must be in addition to any course that is part of the Business core and must be in three different departments, not majors.

Business Administration Integrative Course (ILC) Options:  three course.  In no case may an ILC course be double counted towards completing other requirements of the Business Administration major.
