The Pre-Business area of study (formerly known as Business Undecided) is designed to enable students to start working on their BBA degree while they explore the various business disciplines. The Pre-Business area of study is not a major. Rather, it comprises the proficiency competencies and most of the BUSCORE that all College of Business students take as part of their major. Through the BUSCORE, students are exposed to the different business disciplines of study and can then easily transition to and declare one of the majors in the College of Business. Students who have declared Pre-Business will be advised through the Business Communications and Information Systems department.
Proficiency requirements include basic prerequisite courses and/or entry-level competencies for the major. These are not counted as credits in the major.
|ECON 103||Principles of Microeconomics||3|
|ECON 104||Principles of Macroeconomics||3|
|MATH 109||Algebra for Calculus 1||4|
|MATH 246||Elementary Statistics||4|
The BUSCORE is the common body of courses taken by all BBA students with the exception of the Health Care Administration major. It consists of the following courses:
|ACCT 201||Introduction to Accounting||3|
|BCOM 206||Business Writing 1||2|
|BCOM 207||Business Presentations 1||2|

|OSCM 341||Operations Management||3|
Students must earn a grade of C or above in BCOM 206 and BCOM 207.
MGMT 449 is a capstone course that requires prior completion of all other BUSCORE courses. This prerequisite is strictly enforced.
Student Professional Development Program
All students pursing a major in the College of Business must complete the Student Professional Development Workshops. Students pursuing a Pre-Business area of study should complete the Student Professional Development Workshops on the same timeline as students pursuing a major in the College of Business.
