Non-Business Majors

Students not pursuing a business degree may earn a maximum of 29 semester hours in College of Business and Economics courses, excluding ECON 221, 222, 291 and 292, providing they meet the course prerequisites and have attained junior standing (60 semester hours earned) before enrolling in 300-level and above courses. 

General Education Courses

All College of Business and Economics students are required to take the specified general education courses. All students then take a common business and economics core sequence, spanning the full range of business functions. Finally, students select a concentration. 

Students should begin with the recommended curriculum as early as possible. This sequence includes a combination of business, economics and general education courses suggested for each semester in which the student is enrolled. It is imperative that students begin their mathematics/statistics sequence in the first semester of their freshman year and continue this sequence each semester to make adequate progress in any of the business concentrations. Students in business and economics are advised by the faculty from the Johnson College of Business and Economics.
