Applicants who wish to pursue an undergraduate business major at 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 the intended major on the application to DU. Qualified students will be considered for direct admission to Daniels when accepted to the University of Denver. Applicants not directly admitted through the DU application process apply to Daniels via the secondary admission process, as an enrolled student, upon successful completion of pre-requisite coursework.
The Daniels secondary admission process supports academic quality, small and engaged classes, and strong student-faculty connections. Most students apply in their second year by submitting an application, resume and cover letter. Application cycles are offered fall, winter, and spring quarters. A holistic assessment of each applicant is conducted by evaluating students’ academic performance and career readiness components. Involvement within the Daniels College of Business is important as it shows a genuine interest in a business major, knowledge of expectations within the major, and wanting to contribute to the community in a meaningful way. Students working through secondary admission take the same preliminary business courses as directly admitted students.
There are three possible admission routes into Daniels:
- Direct admission upon application to the University of Denver, based on indication of business interest on application and eligibility for university merit scholarships. Transfer students are evaluated on GPA, transfer coursework, and work experience.
- 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 of MATH 1200 or 1951.
- Secondary admission upon completion of DCB checkpoint 1 and the following classes: FSEM, WRIT 1122, WRIT 1133, MATH 1200/1951, BUS 1000, INFO 1010, INFO 1020, and ECON 1020. This sample quarter-by-quarter course plan outlines a recommended path for completing the courses required to apply for secondary admission. During fall, winter, and spring application cycles students submit their resume and cover letter for consideration. A 2.5 minimum cumulative GPA is required to apply. Completion of these requirements does not guarantee admission
Please refer to the Daniels website (http://daniels.du.edu) for specific information related to the admission process and requirements. Students needing special accommodations should contact University Disability Services at email@example.com, 303-871-3939 or www.du.edu/studentlife/disability.
Student International Experience Requirement
Business students must be prepared to interact with persons from other cultures and to 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.
The preference is for a student to study abroad through the Cherrington Global Scholars program, but students may meet this requirement by completing any DU-approved study abroad program (HPM majors must study abroad). If travel is not possible, a student can satisfy this requirement by taking one of the following courses:
|ACTG 3284||Consolidated Financial Statement||2|
|ACTG 3285||Accounting for Foreign Operations||2|
|FIN 3410||Multinational Financial Management||4|
|MGMT 2420||Global Management||4|
