In order to enroll in 400-level BUS and ECO courses (except for BUS481), students must earn a minimum grade of D in each of the core courses.  However, to complete the accounting and finance major, students must have earned a minimum grade of C in each of the core courses.

3

MAT124M may be used as a substitute. Students entering graduate school in business are strongly encouraged to take BUS100M or MAT124M. Students in Business Analysis and Analytics emphasis must take BUS100M or MAT124M.  

4

To qualify for taking the Certified Public Accounting (CPA) exam, the internship course must be specifically designated as an Internship-Accounting in order to fulfill the rules established by the Minnesota Board of Accountancy. A maximum of six credits for internships can qualify for the 150-credit requirement for CPA licensing.

These electives are a required component of the major.  It is recommended that a minor in a discipline other than business or economics be completed to fulfill some of these electives.
