● ECON 010 (Micro/Macroeconomics)

The core of the business curriculum consists of nine "Business Fundamentals" that provide students with critical tools for analyzing business documents and making business decisions
● ACCT 101 (Principles of Accounting I)
● ACCT 102 (Principles of Accounting II)
● FNCE 100 (Corporate Finance)
● FNCE 101 (Monetary Economics & the Global Economy)
● STAT 101 (Introductory Business Statistics I)
● STAT 102 (Introductory Business Statistics II)
● MGMT 101 (Introduction to Management)
● MKTG 101 (Introduction to Marketing)
● OIDD 101 (Introduction to the Computer as an Analysis Tool)
An additional course, MGMT 100 (Leadership and Communication in Groups), helps students develop teamwork and public speaking skills. It typically is taken in the fall semester of the freshman year.
Environment of Business
Students must take 1 of the following 3 courses that address the “Societal Environment” in which business organizations function:
● LGST 101 (Introduction to Law and Legal Process)
● LGST 210 (Corporate Responsibility and Ethics)
● BEPP 203 (Business in the Global Political Environment)
Business Depth & Breadth
The introductory business courses set the stage for the Business Concentration, 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 121 counts as one of these Business Breadth courses; students must complete two others to finish the requirement.
Non-Business, Non-Science Electives
For the B.S. degree, students must take 4 electives that are neither science nor business courses: 2 Global Electives and 2 General Education Electives. In completing these 4 electives, at least 2 must be taken at Penn, and up to 2 AP credits (1 Global, 1 General Education) may be used. Students may double-count these electives with the "College Sector" requirements for the B.A. degree, as described on the College Courses page.
