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 Economics
Management of Human Resources
Professional Selling
Business 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.

Math Placement All students entering the College of Business will be required to take mathematics courses as part of their college requirements. It is necessary to determine the math skill level in order to place the student into the appropriate level math course to ensure their academic success. To accomplish this we utilize a variety of tools both before the student arrives on campus such as ACT, SAT or GRE scores, eligible transfer credits from other colleges, universities or AP programs and once the student arrives using our own online placement exam or one of the proctored exams such as Accuplacer or Compass.

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. Common course work includes ACCT 2010 (1010), ACCT 2020 (1020), ECON 1010, ECON 1020, MGT 1040, FIN 3250, IMGT 2400, MGT 3210, MKT 3210, DSCI 3210, and MGT 4800.

Elective courses are also a part of the curriculum giving students a broader horizon and a well-rounded general 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. 

NOTE: Our course numbering system is organized as follows:

  • 1000-2000 numbered courses are undergraduate lower division courses
    (Freshman-Sophomore level coursework)
  • 3000-4000 numbered courses are undergraduate upper-division courses
    (Junior-Senior level coursework)
  • 5000 numbered courses are graduate courses and enrollment requires either admission to Graduate School or consent of the program director.
