Summer terms are a great time to complete general education and CBA Core courses which will enable students to reach degree completion earlier. Core courses should be completed before the start of the senior year.
Students pursuing this major are required to have a minor as part of the degree requirements. We highly recommended a minor from one of the following: Information Systems, Marketing Management, Sales Management or Human Resource Management, Economics, Labor Economics, English, Mathematics/Applied Mathematics or General Philosophy.
Students pursuing this major must travel abroad. Students are encouraged to travel abroad their junior year. Information can be found through the Office of International Programs or through programs led by CBA Faculty during the summer. Plan your travel abroad at least a year in advance as planning is very time intensive.
