B.B.A. with Major in Marketing
The Department of Marketing offers a four-year program, broadly based to prepare students for a variety of marketing managerial positions. The flexible curriculum enables students in their junior and senior years to select courses in areas of special interest. The Marketing program is offered through the College of Business and Public Administration, one of approximately 400 colleges in the United States accredited by AACSB International at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.Graduation requirements include a minimum 2.50 (2.0 is C) grade point average in all courses that apply toward the degree, as well as a minimum 2.50 in business administration courses that apply toward the degree and major. Students must complete at least 50% of the 125 semester hours for the B.B.A. outside the College of Business and Public Administration. As part of this work, students complete the University-wide general education requirements.
Students may be admitted to the College of Business & Public Administration and may elect a major within a business discipline after completing at least 60 semester hours at UND or other accredited institutions.
They must also have earned a minimum grade point average of 2.50 (2.0 is C) in all courses attempted and a “C” or better in the six courses comprising a sophomore-level pre-business core.
Students planning to transfer to UND from a junior college should enroll in only those junior college business courses that are offered as freshman or sophomore level courses at UND.
