The Business Administration major requires the ten upper division business core courses and seven additional approved upper-division business electives courses from at least three different departments in the Lundquist College of Business. Additionally, students have non-business breadth and global context requirements outside the Lundquist College of Business.
Business majors are advised to complete the 300-level upper division core prior to taking 300-400 business electives.

Upper Division Electives and Concentrations
The business administration major requires seven approved upper-division elective business courses from three different departments in the Lundquist College of Business (accounting, operations and business analytics, finance, management, and marketing/sports business.)
It is possible to select electives in such a way that you earn a concentration in a specific area. Concentrations are available in entrepreneurship, finance, marketing, operations and business analytics, and sports business. Please note that concentrations are not documented by the University of Oregon and will not appear a student’s transcript or diploma. Students may indicate concentrations on their resume.

Below is a list of the course offerings that can fulfill the upper division elective requirement. Courses with a BA or BE prefix are considered interdisciplinary and therefore are NOT counted as a third department. Courses with the SBUS prefix are considered part of the Marketing department. A maximum of one course from the “other” list may be applied towards the major requirements. Descriptions of these courses can be found in the class schedule.
Accounting majors looking to switch to business administration can use the form linked below to submit their request to change majors.
