Course Work Requirements

Undergraduate students majoring in the College of Business will take a wide range of courses during their studies at the University of Wyoming.

The planned coursework is designed to give each student a thorough educational experience-from the broad strokes to the fine points. Our goal: well-rounded students with high-level expertise in their chosen field. Main campus students are limited to four online business courses.

Course requirements for the following Undergraduate Majors:
Business Administration
Business Economics 
Concurrent Economics
Undecided Major

University Studies courses fulfill university requirements for such areas as science, quantitative reasoning, writing, and cultural context.  All students at UW must complete the University Studies Program (USP) to ensure they are well-grounded scholars.

Advanced Business Standing is a requirement all majors in the College of Business must complete before beginning the majority of upper-division course work.  Advanced Business Standing (ABS) constitutes the basic skills all business majors will need before beginning advanced major courses.

College of Business Student Advising Handbook provides detailed information about our office, university studies program (USP) and the advanced business standing (ABS) requirement.

Common Courses in Business
are courses all majors in the College of Business will take to gain exposure  to the basic business skills and knowledge necessary to complete a well-rounded, high quality business education.

Finally, students take core and elective courses in their major which are designed by our departments to give our students the tools they need to be successful in their fields.
