Major in e-Business

The program consists of 18 units in lower-level required courses, 30 units of upper-level business required courses, and 24 units of e-Business courses. All major requirements must be completed with a grade equivalent of 2.00 or higher. 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.

The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in e-Business requires a minimum of 120 earned units, which must include successful completion of the university Core Curriculum requirements, the e-Business major requirements and electives.

Students are responsible for monitoring their own progress toward graduation. Students must consult with their assigned advisers each term to ensure that prerequisite courses are taken in proper sequence to meet the student’s target completion date for the degree. Prerequisites are monitored during registration. Please note that not all e-Business courses are offered every term. Students need to create a plan in conjunction with their advisors based on the planned course offerings.
