For the business side of the LSM dual-degree, students earn a Bachelor of Science in Economics (B.S.) by completing the Wharton Undergraduate Curriculum, as outlined below:
First Year Foundations
● BEPP 1000 (Micro/Macroeconomics)
● MATH 1040 (Calculus I)
The core of the Wharton curriculum consists of the "Business Fundamentals," which provide students with the skills and knowledge needed for making business decisions:
• ACCT 1010 (Principles of Accounting I)
• ACCT 1020 (Principles of Accounting II)
• BEPP 2500 (Managerial Economics)
• FNCE 1000 (Corporate Finance)
• FNCE 1010 (Monetary Economics & the Global Economy)
• MGMT 1010 (Introduction to Management)
• MKTG 1010 (Introduction to Marketing)
• OIDD 1010 (Introduction to Operations, Information & Decisions)
• STAT 1010 (Introductory Business Statistics I)
• STAT 1020 (Introductory Business Statistics II)
• Social values: LGST 1010: Law and Social Values or LGST 1000: Ethics and Corporate Responsibility or PHIL 0020, PHIL 0080, PHIL 0770, SOCI 1350, or PSCI 1820
The Leadership Journey is a set of four modules that prepares students for leadership roles by providing experiential learning as well as evidence-based content on leadership, communication, teamwork, and diversity. LSM students complete this journey by taking two 0.5 CU modules in the first two years (WH 1010 and WH 2010), and also through the leadership and group dynamics instruction provided in the LSM Proseminar (LSMP 1210) and the LSM Capstone (LSMP 4210).
Environment of Business
Students must take a course in each of the following categories:
• Global Economy, Business, and Society (1 CU): For LSM students, this course can also count toward the Business Breadth requirement.
• Technology, Innovation, and Analytics (1 CU): This requirement is satisfied by the LSMP 4210 Capstone course.
Business Depth & Breadth
The introductory business courses set the stage for concentrations, for which students take 4 courses in the area of business study that interests them most. These are upper-level courses that deepen the knowledge students have gained from their “Business Fundamentals.” Students also expand their business education by completing 3 “Business Breadth” courses: three classes from three different business departments. No courses from the same department as a student’s business concentration may count toward the Business Breadth requirement. LSMP 1210 counts as one of these Business Breadth courses; students must complete two others to finish the requirement; one of those courses can also be used to fulfill the Global Economy, Business, and Society requirement.
Cross Cultural Perspectives and General Education
LSM students satisfy Wharton’s General Education and Cross Cultural Perspectives requirements in completing their Foundational Approaches and Sector requirements in the College. No additional courses are needed. Note that LSM students, as College students, need to satisfy the College language requirement.
