If you repeat a prerequisite course for our majors, the second grade is counted, even if that grade is lower than the grade you earned the first time. You may not take a course for a third time. 

Academic Requirements

Students must successfully complete the seven business administration prerequisite courses to be permitted to take the required courses for the major and meet the stated minimum admission requirements (2.5 prerequisite GPA, 2.5 UB GPA, 2.5 overall GPA, and 60 earned credit hours)

  • After beginning the required courses for the major, students must maintain a minimum UB and Major GPA of 2.0 and successfully complete all degree requirements for degree conferral.


Students should plan concentration courses so that they are spaced out over two or more semesters, typically in the three (junior) and fourth (senior) year.

General Management

The School of Management offers formal concentrations, which are sequences of courses available to students interested in specific management areas. It is not a requirement to follow a concentration, but all students must complete at least three upper-level management electives (for general management). These electives must be outside of the core management requirements. A 3-credit-hour internship (approved through the IEL Program) does count as one management elective if you do not pursue a concentration.
