Must be completed prior to MGMT 3013.


 Must be completed prior to taking any 3000 or 4000 level business courses.

Students are encouraged to take the following courses to satisfy the junior/senior business elective requirement: ACCT 310V, ACCT 410V, ACCT 4003H, FINN 3013, FINN 3103, FINN 3703, ISYS 4213 or any 3-hour Walton College Study Abroad Course.  No more than six hours of accounting may be in the major.

Accounting Students are encouraged to utilize ACCT 310V in the Spring of Year 4 for Internship Credit as a business elective (in combination with compressed sections of ACCT 4673 and ACCT 4963). To do so requires the student to defer 3 credit hours of General Education electives to an alternative Fall, Spring, or Summer semester. This also strengthens the ability of the student to transition into the Masters of Accounting Program.
