Notes

  1. Students in this program may not count EC120 or EC140 towards the 5.0 credits required in the Management Option.

  3. Normally students will take BU383 in Year 3, instead of BU223 since they will complete EC285 (EC235) in Year 2.
  4. BU385 has a prerequisite of EC275.
  5. Progression to Year 2 requires a GPA of 6.00 in EC120 and EC140, and an overall GPA of 5.00. For progression to Year 3 and Year 4 a cumulative GPA of 7.00 is required in economics courses and a cumulative overall GPA of 6.00.
