Bachelor of Science in Business Administration
When you are admitted to Mizzou, you can be admitted as an undeclared business or undeclared accountancy student and join the Trulaske College of Business your freshman year. You’ll spend your first two years in the Lower Level exploring your interests, discovering your strengths, and determining what path you want to take in business. You’ll then apply to a specific degree program, the Upper Level.
Admission to the Upper Level is competitive, involving a review of your required coursework, Mizzou GPA, and professional development points. Your academic advisor will guide you through the process. Learn more about Upper Level Admissions
To be eligible to apply to the Upper Level, students must meet the minimum cumulative GPA of a 2.6 (3.0 for accounting), have completed or be in progress of completing ten required courses (for students who started previous to Fall 2016), and have completed between 45 and 60 hours of credit. Starting with the Fall 2016 incoming class, students will need to have completed or be in progress of completing 12 required courses. Students also must complete 70 Professional Development Program points by the end of the semester that they apply to the Upper Level. Meeting minimum qualifications DOES NOT GUARANTEE ADMISSION into an Upper Level program. Admission is competitive base on a student's GPA and upper level capacity.
Accountancy prepares students for the competitive field of accounting with a combination of classroom study, practical experience, and student organizations, all in a degree that is nationally recognized for excellence. The bachelor of science and master’s of accountancy degree programs are merged into an integrated 150-hour curriculum to be entered into as a junior. A limited number of students may also be accepted into the MAcc program.
