Students who complete a major in Accounting, Finance, Management, Marketing, International Business, or the OCE Business Information Systems major may not count CONTEMPORARY BUSINESS (BNSS 250) toward their minor and must substitute a course from “three courses from the following” list.
To provide interdisciplinary breadth, a minimum of two courses must be taken from outside the School of Business.
STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT (BNSS 495) and one-time courses offerings may be used to fill an elective requirement. For these courses, and COMM and JAMS courses, students must petition the SMG coordinator and provide a signed agreement between the student and the relevant course instructor stating that at least 1/3 of the course grade was devoted to sport or sport-related issues. The SMG coordinator must approve the petition before the Office of the Registrar will accept the elective credit.
