  • Of the total credits required for the degree, at least 75 must be upper-division courses at the 2000- or 3000-level.

General Policies

  • At least 50 percent of required business courses for the degree must be completed at the University of Denver.
  • Students must earn a minimum GPA of 2.5 overall, in all business courses and in the major.
  • Students must earn a minimum grade of "C-" in their additional non-­business and business core requirements.

Residence Requirement

  • The last 45 credits earned prior to granting a degree must be completed at the University of Denver apart from approved study abroad participation.

Student International Experience Requirement

Business students must be prepared to interact with persons from other cultures and manage in circumstances where business practices and social conventions are different from the student’s native country. To meet this requirement, all students entering DU fall 2006 or thereafter must fulfill an international experience before they can graduate as a business major.

Pre-Business Pathways

Applicants who wish to pursue an undergraduate business major in Daniels must first apply to, and be accepted by, the University of Denver. The application to the university serves as the Daniels College of Business application for students who indicate business as their intended major on their application to DU. Students will be considered for direct admission to Daniels when accepted to the University of Denver. If applicants are not directly admitted through the DU application process, they are encouraged to work through the fast track or pre-business pathways as an enrolled student.

There are three possible admission routes into Daniels:

  1. Secure direct admission upon application to the University of Denver, based on indication of business interest on application and overall strength of application credentials. Transfer applicants are evaluated on GPA, transfer coursework, and work experience; or
  2. Earn Fast Track admission upon completing two quarters as a full-time student at DU with a 3.5 cumulative GPA or higher, including successful completion (C- or higher) of MATH 1200 Calculus for Business and Social Sciences or MATH 1951 Calculus I; or
  3.
