  • Pamplin School of Business requirements are foundational courses that all students in the School of Business must complete, regardless of specific major.

What if I would like to major in Business but did not get accepted to the School of Business?

For now, make sure to indicate an interest in majoring in Business during your phone interview. BUS 100 will be reserved for majors only until the end of summer, when available space may open up. It is recommended that if you are interested in Business, you take ECN 120 and MTH 161 during your first semester. Both will count for university core requirements should you ultimately choose a different major.
