These programs have been designed to offer students the opportunity to major in both traditional and emerging financial fields. Course offerings give students a broad exposure to contemporary issues in the financial world. Courses in finance have been designed to meet the following objectives:
Six courses (18 s.h.) in finance and related fields must be completed with grades of C- or higher for the major in finance (with a minimum average of 2.00). A minimum grade of C- is required for FIN 311.
Other courses may be substituted with prior written consent.
For students entering with less than 30 semester hours
* Higher-level mathematics may be substituted for MATH116 and 121 with permission. ECON 234 may be replaced by MATH 217.
Quantitative skills are critical for the academic study of business. This is especially true for accounting and finance majors. For all students, required business classes such as FIN 311 and MGMT 300 are mathematically based. In order to complete the degree on a timely basis, students are required to take mathematical requirements (MATH 116, MATH 121, ECON 234, and any developmental courses required by the RUA) in the first semester and in each following semester until these requirements are completed.
Students entering with 30 to 89 semester hours
All requirements listed above for students entering with less than 30 semester hours must be completed by students entering with 30 to 89 hours with the exception of LIBS 111 and 112. These courses are replaced by 6 s.h. of non-business electives.
Students entering with 90 semester hours or more
All requirements listed above for students entering with less than 30 semester hours must be completed by students entering with 90 or more semester hours with the exception of LIBS 111, LIBS 112, and the Roosevelt signature course. These courses are replaced by 9 s.h. of nonbusiness electives.
All freshmen/sophomore business requirements must be completed with grades of C- or higher. A 300-level business elective is substituted for the international perspective course if an international course is in the major. Mgmt 380 must be taken at Roosevelt and passed with a grade of C- or higher. One grade of D may be used in the remaining junior/senior core courses unless a C- is specifically required by the major.
HCB recommends that students follow the schedule below for the sequential completion of all University, College, and course requirements. Business students must complete all freshman and sophomore prerequisites before enrolling in advanced business courses. Students should start course work in their majors after completing 60 semester hours. Those who are undecided about their majors should consult an advisor in the HCB regarding course selection. Students seeking an interdisciplinary major should consult the assistant dean for undergraduate business studies.
