About the Bachelor of Science in Business

The 120 credit hour undergraduate curricula for students majoring in business administration consists essentially of three parts

  • Campuswide General Education Core
  • Business Administration Core
  • Professional Courses for a specific concentration

The following is a list of the courses and credit hours that all undergraduate curricula require. In certain curricula concentrations, specific campuswide general-education courses are required within the seven groups of courses listed. Students must attain a grade of not less than a C in any of those courses marked with an asterisk (*).

Academic Advising

College policy on advising requires that students meet with their academic advisors at least once each year, and in some departments, prior to each semester’s enrollment. Advising holds are placed on all Judd Leighton School of Business students prior to advance registration and are released following advising appointments. Students with a declared major are advised in their academic units. To determine who your advisor is and how to contact them, see One.IU
