CHANGES TO THE BUSINESS HONORS PROGRAM DEGREE REQUIREMENTS IN THE RED MCCOMBS SCHOOL OF BUSINESS CHAPTER OF THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG 2006-2008


On page 55,in the section PROGRAM DEGREE REQUIREMENTS, under the DEGREES headingin the Red McCombs School of Business chapter of the Undergraduate Catalog, 2004-2006, make the following changes:


BUSINESS HONORS PROGRAM

{No changes to introduction sections on admission, continuance, graduation}

DEGREE REQUIREMENTS

Business Honors Program students may choose a general program of study, one of the major subject degree plans, or both. Requirements for the Bachelor of Business Administration with a general program of study are
1. The Bachelor of Business Administration degree requirements on pages 49-50. [Business honors students must also complete Business Administration 102H.]

2. Completion of the following core courses and other business courses in special Honors Program sections: Accounting 311H, 312H, Business Administration 324H, 151H, FIN 357H, Legal Environment of Business 323H, Management 335H, 336H and 374H, Management Science 371H, Marketing 337H, and Statistics 309H.

3. Nine semester hours of upper-division business electives.

4. Additional elective coursework, if necessary, to provide a total of at least [122] 121 semester hours.


RATIONALE:
Experience has shown that the material covered in BA 101H, BA 102H, and BA 151H can be covered effectively in BA101H and BA 151H. BA 102H is to be eliminated rather than BA 151H because the latter will help integrate students admitted into the program as sophomores.
