Bachelor of Management in Business Economics (BMgt)
52.5 Bachelor of Management in Business Economics (BMgt)
The four year Bachelor of Management in Business Economics consists of 120 arts, science and professional (see §55.2 Classification of Courses) including 66 in the Business Economics program and the credits required for the common liberal arts and sciences requirements. Because of the possibility of overlap between the credits required for a portion of the common liberal arts and sciences requirements and those required for the Business Economics program, a student may also include options or an optional minor as follows:
Business Economics Program: 15 in Economics Foundation courses, 27 in Management Foundation courses, 9 additional senior credits in Economics courses at least 6 of which must be at the 300-level or above, and 9 additional senior credits in Economics or Management at the 300-level or above.
Liberal arts and sciences common requirements
The liberal arts and sciences common requirements consist of two areas: 21 in Breadth and 15 in the Augustana Core. The same credit may not be counted twice in courses that relate to more than one category within these areas; that is, a total of 36 different credits must be earned to fulfill these requirements.
The 21 Breadth requirements consist of four different categories; credits counted towards these categories may not overlap with a student’s first major:
3 Fine Arts
6 Social Sciences
For the actual classification of Augustana courses within these categories, see §55.2.
The Augustana Core requirements consist of five different categories. A student must complete 15 from at least three of the five categories with no more than 6 in any one category; courses which satisfy these requirements may overlap with a student’s major:
Optional minor: A minimum of 18 in one discipline or approved interdisciplinary area, including at least 12 at the senior level. A student should be aware that it may not be possible to complete certain combinations of majors and minors without extending the time required to earn the degree.
Options: 3-21 (or more, depending on the amount of overlap between the core and the requirements for the major, and/or minor) of the student's choice. A student may choose to use options to work toward a minor, or second major but should be aware that a double major normally requires more than 120 in the degree program.
52.5.2 Residence Requirements
Students registered in a BMgt program must complete at least 60 credits offered by the Augustana Faculty at least 54 of which must be at the senior level. However,
Language or other study abroad may, with special permission of the Associate Dean, Academic Programs, count toward the residence requirement.
An exception to this requirement may be granted to students already holding a BA or BSc who can transfer sufficient credits from their first degree to be able to complete the requirements of the Bachelor of Management in Business Economics degree in fewer than 60. Normally in such cases at least the final 45 must be completed at Augustana.
