|EB 131||Financial Accounting||
|EB 201||The Management Process||3||Sophomore Standing|
|EB 202||Behavioral Analysis of Organizations||4||Sophomore Standing|
|Two other EB courses, selected with advice from the Accounting, Business, and Economics faculty, at least one of which must be 300/400 level (excluding EB 210 and 211, Quantitative Business Analysis and Business Statistics)||3 + 3*||Pre-requisites will NOT automatically be waived|
* Must total 6 credits.
- For most programs the only requirement is a B.S. or B.A. with NO specific prerequisite courses. However, the minimal list above will provide a good general background. It is important to check requirements of schools in which you are interested no later than your sophomore year and then to pursue a POE in any area in which you are interested.
- Strongly recommended: a second semester of quantitative/statistics courses, (ex. Quantitative Business Analysis II), logic (ex. Symbolic Logic), Communication courses and an English course. Other recommended courses include International Economic Issues, Mediation, Ethics of Health Care, and foreign language (especially Spanish).
- This course list does NOT represent a POE, nor does it cover College requirements. Design a POE, preferably in an academic area, in consultation with your advisor.
- Make sure to have an advisor in the Accounting, Business, and Economics Departmen. Professor Kathy Baughman is recommended.
- In addition to your course work you are required to gain some experience in health administration either during the school year or over the summer.
