UVM and Business Endless Possibilities

Interdisciplinary Themes

The Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration provides a distinctive focus on three interdisciplinary strategic themes. All students must choose one theme by their junior year. The available themes are:




All students must complete four (4) courses within their chosen theme, including one interdisciplinary "capstone" course in the fourth year. Students who complete our undergraduate program receive a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) with an interdisciplinary theme in one of the three areas.

Four Concentrations

In addition to the three strategic themes, students have the option to pursue a second concentration in a specific discipline. The available disciplines are:

Minors

Business students are required to have a minor. The declared minor must be outside of the School of Business (cannot minor in Business or Accounting). The Film & Television Studies minor is only available to students in the College of Arts & Sciences. The following CDAE minors are restricted due to content overlap: Consumer and Advertising, Consumer Affairs, Community Entrepreneurship, and Public Communication. Therefore, these minors are not available to business students. List of available minors

Accounting Minor

An accounting background is useful for many career paths. Most obvious are jobs directly related to accounting and finance. However, people in many other careers and in a variety of settings - corporate, small business, or not-for-profit organizations - find an understanding of accounting useful. Due to recent changes in the CPA licensure process, many students are opting to stay at UVM to earn the Masters in Accountancy degree (MAcc). Additional questions regarding the MAcc can be directed to any member of the Accounting faculty.

Prerequisites

The courses must be completed with a GPA of at least a 2.00 before you can be admitted to the minor in Accounting:

  • ECON 011 - Macroeconomics
