Combined Major in Business Administration and Information Systems

The combined major in Business Administration and Computer Information Systems requires at least 89 units to be earned with a grade equivalent of 2.00 or higher. A minimum of 30 major units must be completed at Towson University. In order to assure that students have retained critical information from prior courses, students take a comprehensive examination on business content as part of the capstone course, MNGT 481. The results of this examination serve as 10 percent of the MNGT 481 grade.

Degree candidates intending to major in Business Administration are designated as “pre-Business” (PBUA) until admitted into the BUAD major. (See admission requirements in the Business Administration major section of this catalog.)
