Declaring a Business Major
New College of Business students are admitted as pre-majors rather than in a specific major. Pre-major students may not enroll in upper-division business courses (300 or above) until they have completed the pre-business core courses.
Requirements for Acceptance to a Business Major:
- Completion of the 9 pre-business courses
- 2.0 University GPA
- ACC 201: Financial Accounting
- ACC 202: Managerial Accounting
- IS 101: Introduction to Information System
- ECON 102: Microeconomics
- ECON 103: Macroeconomics
- ECON 261: Principles Statistics I
- ECON 262: Principles Statistics II
- MKT 210: Marketing Principles
- MATH 176: Calculus
Please note: These requirements are the minimum standard that all student are encouraged to surpass. Success in a major or program is dependent upon a student developing strong quantitative and English usage skills.
Requirements for Graduation:
Students must complete all degree requirements with a 2.0 University GPA in order to graduate.
Requirements to Declare a Business Minor:
