Retention in the management major is competitive based on a student’s GPA. A transcript review must be completed by the department and permission granted before a management major can enroll in MGMT 335 or MGMT 355.

Satisfactory completion of UBUS 310 as evidenced by a grade of C or better is required before a management major is allowed to enroll in any 300- or 400-level course required in the major that has UBUS 310 as a prerequisite.

Management prerequisites are met only by obtaining a grade of C or better. (It is necessary to repeat a MGMT prerequisite in which a grade below C was earned before taking the next course in the sequence.)

To graduate as a management major, a student must earn a grade of at least C in each course required in the major, which includes courses in the business core, required MGMT courses, and all electives required for the major.

Management majors may repeat a maximum of two 300- or 400-level courses required in the major, which includes 300- and 400-level courses in the business core, required MGMT courses, and all elective courses required for the major.

Students who want to repeat a MGMT course will be permitted to enroll in that course only during add/drop and if there is space available.

Business Core (45-50)

The College of Business is competitive based on a student’s overall GPA and performance in selected tool courses.
