Prepare for Success in Business Administration


The Pre-Business Program is an undergraduate program designed for students considering a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration. The intent of the program is to improve the probability of success for those students committed to pursuing this degree as well as offering exposure to students considering the business program.

The courses in the Pre-Business Program are all core business courses. Students will take these courses first before they enter the emphasis. Upon successful completion of the following courses with an overall grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 and a School of Business and Economics GPA of 2.5, the student may apply to the School of Business and Economics to be classified as a Business major. Business majors should take MTH 221 as part of their General Education requirements.

Transfer students may participate in the Pre-Business Program and petition for classes taken at other accredited institutions to be considered for substitution within the guidelines of Concordia University.
