Declaring a Business Administration Major

Students who declared a Business Administration major prior to fall 2005, whether at a community college or at CSU, Chico, may remain with the previous catalog or choose the current one. You must follow the complete set of course requirements from whichever catalog you choose. See your advisor for help with this decision.

The program requires a Prerequisite Core. These classes (BADM 101, BADM 103 or MATH 105, ACCT 201, ACCT 202, ECON 102, ECON 103, and MATH 107) must be completed with a grade of C or better in each class, regardless of when you declared the major. If you receive a C- or lower in one of the prerequisite core classes, you must repeat it. Students wishing to major in business must complete MATH 107 and BADM 103 or MATH 105 (with a verified grade of C or better in each) before being allowed to move beyond pre-business status. This requires that students complete MATH 107 and BADM 103 or MATH 105 at least one semester before declaring a business major. Transfer students may, at the discretion of the Business Undergraduate Advising Office, be granted a one-semester grace period to allow for grades in equivalent courses to arrive.

You will want to read more about our programs at the College of Business home pages on the Web. There you can read special advising information for first-year and transfer students. You can link to home pages for advisors and faculty members. Begin with the College of Business home page (http://www.csuchico.edu/cob/).

Honors in the Major

Honors in the Major is a program of independent work in your major. It requires 6 units of honors course work completed over two semesters.

The Honors in the Major program allows you to work closely with a faculty mentor in your area of interest on an original performance or research project. This year-long collaboration allows you to work in your field at a professional level and culminates in a public presentation of your work. Students sometimes take their projects beyond the University for submission in professional journals, presentation at conferences, or academic competition. Such experience is valuable for graduate school and professional life. Your honors work will be recognized at your graduation, on your permanent transcripts, and on your diploma. It is often accompanied by letters of commendation from your mentor in the department or the department chair.
