Curriculum Structure

At Central Connecticut State University, all School of Business students must complete general education requirements, courses in the common business core, and the courses in their chosen major.

General education requirements consist of 44 to 46 credits of various classes within different "Study Areas" and "Skill Areas." These classes can be taken concurrently with major classes.

The common business core classes are a series of classes that all School of Business students are required to take, regardless of their major. That is to say, a finance major must satiate the same common business core classes as a marketing major.

These classes- which include introductory classes in accounting, marketing, finance, and business law, may be taken concurrently, and in most cases in whichever order a student wishes. Upon completion of these courses, School of Business students advance into their respective upper division classes.
