Business Administration & Accounting
There are two majors offered in the School of Business. As an incoming freshman, you will be declared as an Undeclared Business major. Students in the School of Business will apply for admission to the major after they have completed their Business Foundation courses. At that time, you will choose a major, and if applicable, a concentration. Your Business advisor will help you navigate this process.
In your first semester, you may be placed in one of the following School of Business Administration core requirements, depending on course availability and academic preparation:
- BUSN 111 Business Computing
- ECON 201 Microeconomics
- ECON 202 Macroeconomics
Business students take one of the following MATH courses in the first semester as well:
- MATH 112 College Algebra*
- MATH 114 Math Analysis for Business
- MATH 148 Survey of Calculus
- MATH 157 Calculus and Analytic Geometry I (space permitting)
For course descriptions and program information, please visit the on-line Undergraduate Catalogue. You will follow the 2013-14 Undergraduate Catalogue - this is your contract with the University, and vis versa. Be sure to review the information in the 13-14 catalogue when it becomes available (the catalogue is still under review, and should be posted to the website this summer). Until then, please refer to the 2012-2013 Undergraduate Catalogue, as much of the information is the same.
MATH placement is determined by Academic Advising & Assistance and the Math Department using the student's high school transcript and standardized test scores. MATH 114, 148 and 157 fulfill the business math requirement.
What other courses are required of GU students? Learn more about core requirements.
*MATH 112 prepares students to take MATH 114 and does not fulfill the business math requirement. This course will count towards graduation in the elective category. Students who are not prepared for Math 114 due to their high school preparation will be placed in Math 112.
