  • The additional major application may only be submitted once per semester; the current semester deadline is Friday, March 7, 2014 by 5 p.m. Please drop off completed application at the Undergraduate Business office, Tepper Room 139.

Students must meet all of the following criteria to apply for the additional major:

  • At least junior year status
  • Overall QPA of at least 3.0
  • Minimum QPA of 3.0 in required courses for additional major
  • Completion of the Mathematics, Statistics, Economics, and Computing requirements  (see below for specific course names and numbers)
  • Completion of at least six of the required 70-XXX courses
  • No more than two required business courses may count toward another degree's requirements

Students considering the additional major should be aware that additional time and flexibility may be required to satisfy all requirements. Many required courses are in high demand and are offered in limited time slots (in some cases, only once per academic year). Completion of all courses required for the additional major cannot be guaranteed -- hence the possible need for additional time and flexibility.
