Any student admitted to NIU can declare a major in management; however, to continue as a management major and enroll in 300- or 400-level management courses required by the major, the following criteria must be met.
- All business majors must complete UBUS 310 with a C or better grade.
- All management majors must submit a completed Department of Management Transcript Review Form to the Department of Management during the semester in which they are enrolled in UBUS 310 before enrolling in MGMT 335 or MGMT 355. This form is separate from the NIU Admission form and is available in the Department of Management Office or online. Students are responsible to provide all transcript information to the Office of Registration and Records.
Completed forms must be submitted by the deadline to:
The Department of Management
Northern Illinois University
DeKalb, IL 60115
- All management majors must meet the cumulative GPA requirement set by the Department of Management to enroll in MGMT 335 or MGMT 355. With a cumulative GPA of 2.75 or higher, students who complete the transcript review process and meet pre-requisites will be able to enroll in MGMT 335 and MGMT 355.
- Meeting the department requirements to be retained as a management major does not declare your major. You must declare your major in the Undergraduate Studies in Business Office in Barsema Hall 201.
