APPLICATION AND REQUIREMENTS

To declare a BBA Major students must apply to the BBA program following the steps outlined here:

  1. Once students have completed all 4 core courses (ECON 101 & 102, ACCT 101 & 102) and satisfied the 3.0 GPA requirement, they can submit an application for admission to the program. The program admits new students every Fall and Spring semester. For Spring BBA enrollment, the department accepts applications between early October and early January (exact dates vary). For Fall BBA enrollment, the department accepts applications between early May and early August (exact dates vary).
  2. All applications for a given semester are reviewed at the same time after the cycle has closed, regardless of when the application was submitted. The department notifies students of its decision every January and August.
  3. Once all applications have been reviewed, students who meet the GPA requirements will be invited to attend a mandatory BBA orientation session. Students who attend the BBA orientation session will be given instructions on how to declare their BBA major. Those who do not attend will not be allowed to declare their major until they’ve attended and must wait until the following semester to do so.

Why take MATH 141 (or 151) as opposed to MATH 131?

We strongly encourage taking MATH 141 (or 151) over MATH 131. There are several good reasons for this:

     First, it opens up many doors. MATH 141 (or 151) provides access to other courses in Math and Computer Science. Instead MATH 131 is a dead-end.

     Second, it is a great investment. MATH 141 (or 151) will provide you with the mathematical skills you need to excel in courses such as ECON 201 and 202, and BUS 249, 353, 382 or 386.

     Third, MATH 141 (or 151) is a pre-requisite for the Financial Modeling Minor, which is a great addition to your Economics major if you are interested in a career in quantitative finance or economics.
