Mathematical Preparation

Quantitative skills are critical for the academic study of business. This is especially true for accounting and finance majors. For all students, required business classes such as FIN 311 and MGMT 300 are mathematically based. In order to complete the degree on a timely basis, students are required to take mathematical requirements (MATH 116, MATH 121, ECON 234, and any developmental courses required by the RUA) in the first semester and in each following semester until these requirements are completed.
