Frequently asked questions about registering for Spring 2022 courses include:

How does the BIE requirement work?
BIE stands for Broadening, International, and Experiential. Every business student falls into one of the categories below.

  1. Business students with a single concentration take a Broadening course and either an International or Experiential course.
  2. Business students with two or more concentrations take either an International or Experiential course with these exceptions:
    1. Students with an International Business concentration take either a Broadening, Experiential or 200-level or higher language course.
    2. Students with a concentration in Entrepreneurship and Innovation take a Broadening or an International course.
  3. Accounting students who do not have a business concentration are not required to take a Broadening, International, or Experiential course.
  4. Accounting majors who have a business concentration such as finance take either an International or Experiential course.

A course taken to fulfill a concentration requirement may not be double-counted to satisfy a requirement in the Broadening, International, or Experiential area.

Likewise, MKTG 315 Consumer Behavior would serve as a Broadening course for students with an MIS concentration.
