Double Major Policy

For students who claim 799 as their secondary major, they have options to double count 3 elective credits from their primary major as follows:

  • If the primary major is finance, then double count 390:440 Treasury Management
  • If the primary major is accounting, then double count 010:451 Cost Accounting
  • If the primary major is marketing, then double 630:385 Marketing Research
  • If the primary major is management, then double count 620:350 Negotiations

If the student drops the second major in Finance or Accounting those courses cannot be used as supply chain major electives. The marketing course and the management course can still be used as electives if second major is dropped, because those courses are on the list of supply chain electives.

If the student is a double major in MIS, the SCM course 799:450 Fundamentals of SC Solutions with SAP can count as a MIS elective.
