PROPOSED CHANGES IN THE MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEMS REQUIREMENTS IN THE RED MCCOMBS SCHOOL OF BUSINESS CHAPTER OF THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2000-2002

In Chapter 3, on page 52, in the section PROGRAM DEGREE REQUIREMENTS, under the heading MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEMS, make the following changes:

ADMISSION

Students interested in pursuing the management information systems major must submit an application by [June 1] May 1 to be considered for admission for the following fall semester, or by December 1 to be considered for admission for the following spring semester. To be eligible for consideration, the student must have completed at least forty-five hours of college coursework, including Business Administration 101, [and] 102, and 324, Communication Studies [305 or 319] 306M, Economics 304K and 304L, Mathematics [403K and 403L] 408K or 408C, Mathematics 408L or 408D, and Management Information Systems 304, 310, [324,] and 325. (Because business courses are restricted to business students, transfer students are usually enrolled in the Red McCombs School of Business for one year to complete the required courses before being admitted to the management information systems major.) The student must also have completed the foreign language requirement for the BBA degree and must have removed any admission deficiencies. International students must have an acceptable TOEFL score. Admission to this major is competitive and is based on the applicant's University grade point average and other relevant factors. Admission may be restricted by the availability of instructional resources.

Rationale: MIS 324 has been changed to BA 324.

Communication studies has dropped CMS 305 and 319 and created the new course 306M to replace them.

The change in mathematics reflects the proposed change for all business students to requirement 4c on page 45.
