Choosing a Major or Minor

Business Majors

There are 10 major programs available to students in the Raj Soin College of Business. Our academic advisors and faculty members are available to help students choose their major.

Students who intend to major in accountancy, international business or management information systems, should declare their major before their junior year because these major requirements follow a specific sequence. Generally, it is possible to change majors within business during your junior year without delaying graduation, except in the case of the majors previously listed.

Majors


Undecided on Your Major?

For those students who wish to major in business, but do not know which major they are interested in, please select the undecided category. Students may remain undecided until the middle of their junior year; by that time they will have had course work in all the major areas in business and will be in a better position to decide on a major. Both academic and faculty advisors are available to help students explore majors of interest.

Dual Major

Students wishing to pursue a dual major within the College must formally declare their intention to do so. To earn a dual major, students must complete all minimum requirements for both programs of study. Students may be able to overlap courses and fulfill elective categories with the requirements for a dual major.

Business Minors
