Marquette Core Curriculum (MCC) - 30 credits

Refer to the Marquette Core Curriculum (MCC) in the university section of this bulletin for courses that fulfill requirements. The university allows a maximum of two courses in the Discovery Tier Theme to apply towards a primary major. The College of Business Administration allows up to two courses in a student's declared Discovery Tier Theme to double count towards business core, major course work and/or upper division business electives. This can reduce the overall number of credits a student needs to graduate by a maximum of 6 credits.

Major Courses

Business degree students also must complete the requirements for one of the following majors: accounting, business administration, business economics, finance, human resources, information systems, innovation & entrepreneurship, marketing, operations and supply chain management, real estate. Students can choose to major in more than one business major. The course requirements for the second major replace (and may exceed) the upper division business elective requirements for the primary major, and vice versa for the secondary major’s upper division business elective requirements. This means that credits are shared among majors, and that it is possible to double major with 30 credits of course work. 

The majors in business analytics and international business may also be declared, but if selected, must accompany one of the following majors: accounting, business administration, business economics, finance, human resources, information systems, innovation & entrepreneurship, marketing, operations and supply chain management, real estate. Students can double fulfill one course across two majors when possible. This double fulfillment does not change the minimum credit requirement to graduate and requires a student to take an additional upper division business elective course. Within the Business Core Curriculum, students can double fulfill major course requirements with the Analytics, Business Ethics and Core Enhancement structured electives when possible.

At least one International Business course within or outside a student’s declared major(s) in the College of Business Administration is required.
