How do you know if you need an experiential class?
  • If you have one concentration, you need to take 1. an experiential or international class and 2. a broadening class
  • If you have two or more concentrations, you need to take 1. an experiential or international class but you do not need 2. a broadening class (because your second concentration provides that).
  • If you have an accounting major and no concentration, you do not need to take a broadening, experiential, or international course beyond what is required in the accounting curriculum.
  • If you have an accounting major and one or more concentrations, you need to take 1. an experiential or international class but you do not need 2. a broadening class (because your accounting major provides that).
  • If you have a concentration in Entrepreneurship and Innovation (and no other concentrations), you need to take 1. an international class and 2. a broadening class.
  • If you have an International Business concentration, you need to take either a Broadening, Experiential or 200-level of higher language course.

In the Fall 2017, two sections of BUSN 480/485 will be designated for marketing and accounting students. Students are encouraged to sign up for the sections with their designations. Other students should sign up for any of the open sections.
