Six additional business electives
These electives are designed to provide management students with the option to craft a program of study to meet their career goals in ways not provided for by any of the other School of Business majors. Students should consult with their academic advisors prior to finalizing their major electives to make sure that they have suitable objectives and to ensure that the sets of courses included in their plans of study are academically sound. The typical portfolio of courses in the management major has six electives which carry the FINA, HRMG, MGMT, or MKTG prefix. The selection of electives may include courses from MGMT but must also include courses from at least two of the three functional business areas of finance, human resources, and marketing. An internship in Management is strongly encouraged. A student may earn credit for two distinct internship experiences, but may only apply one Internship course to the elective requirements.

Notes on the management requirements:

  • At least half of the business courses required for the management major—including the business school core, globalization course, human resources course, and the elective courses—must be taken at the College.
  • Students should keep in mind that courses must be taken in a timely manner (e.g., the 100-level courses should optimally be taken during the student’s freshman year at the College, the 200-level during the sophomore year, etc.). In addition, students must pay careful attention to course prerequisites; not doing so could delay progress through the program.
  • Management majors may not declare minors in finance, marketing, or human resources management. If students wish to concentrate their electives in any of these areas, they should speak with advisors in the School of Business about majoring in those fields.
  • Management majors may not declare a double major in any of the former concentration areas of business: finance, human resources management, and marketing.

For students majoring in management, all business core, globalization, and elective courses are included in the determination of the grade point average in the major. Although majors need to achieve a 2.00 grade point average in these courses, it is not necessary to earn a grade of “C” or above in every course.
