Finance builds on the business core and focuses on decision making in three interrelated areas: managerial finance, investments, and financial markets and institutions.

Additional Admission Information


A cumulative grade point average of 2.5 in the above courses must be achieved with a minimum grade of “C-” (1.70) in each course. The credit/no credit option will not be accepted for any of these courses. These criteria apply to equivalent courses transferred from other institutions. The applicant must have earned a minimum grade point average of 2.0 in all collegiate study.

Students who have met all of the above requirements will be admitted unless the number of applicants exceeds available space. In that case, acceptance will be competitive, based on a selection index. Students in a pre-major status who have not met all of the above requirements may enroll in a business core or specialization course only with permission of the college dean or designee.

Additionally, students seeking a Human Resource Management specialization must complete HRM 486 at CWU and students seeking a Marketing specialization must complete MKT 470 at CWU.
  • The BSBA program requires a single specialization of at least 25 credits. Occasionally a student requests a second specialization.
