Admission to Degree Program

Most of the degree programs in the Marriott School of Management carry special enrollment limitations. Please see the advisement center for specific details.

The Discipline

Courses are designed to create opportunities for students to develop and apply their analytical and decision-making abilities. For this reason, the Marriott School programs make extensive use of faculty expertise, case studies, student projects, and internships.

Career Opportunities

Specific job descriptions are many and varied. Some examples are banker, consultant, financial analyst, credit analyst, real estate developer, financial planner, human resource specialist, employee benefit specialist, personnel officer, business systems consultant/analyst, sales representative, account executive, research specialist, marketing analyst, management trainee, buyer, merchandiser, production manager, technical sales person, inventory manager, logistics manager, materials supervisor.

Application Information

This is a limited-enrollment program requiring departmental admissions approval. Please see the college advisement center for information regarding requirements for admission to this major.

Students are encouraged to apply to the Marriott School of Management at the end of their sophomore year, as soon as they have completed the prerequisite courses.

Because of limited enrollments in management programs, the competition for acceptance is keen. Those choosing to enter these majors should decide early, plan their schedules carefully, be aware of all the requirements, and stay informed about any changes by checking often with the Marriott School of Management Advisement Center.

Students interested in management as a major must make application for the management major. A separate application to the School of Accountancy, Finance Department, or Information Systems Department is necessary for those seeking an accounting, finance, or information systems major. Students not accepted into the program should work closely with advisement personnel to select a new major outside the Marriott School.

To be eligible for admission, cumulative GPA must be at least 3.0 in the prerequisite courses, with no more than one repeat for each class. 

Not every student meeting the minimum requirements is guaranteed acceptance into the undergraduate program.

To see application information, see the college advisement center
