Programs of Interest to Both Business Majors and Non-Business Majors
The School of Business offers several academic programs for students whose bachelor degree or degree programs are not in business. These programs include:
- Minor in Business
- Minor in Economics
- Minor in International Business
- Certificate in Entrepreneurship
- Master of Accountancy
- Master of Business Administration
- Kansas Insurance Certificate
The Minor in Business, the Minor in International Business, the Certificate in Entrepreneurship, and the Kansas Insurance Certificate can be earned by any student as part of any Washburn University bachelor degree program. However, the Minor in Business is not available to BBA majors. The Master of Accountancy program is open to Washburn senior accounting students and to students with a bachelor’s degree in accounting, or its equivalent, without regard to major, provided they meet the course prerequisite requirements and the requirements for admission. The Master of Business Administration program is open to students with a bachelor’s degree, or its equivalent, without regard to major, provided they meet the requirements for admission. Admission to both the Master of Accountancy and the MBA programs are selective. Both require a separate application to Washburn University as well as a separate application for admission to the MAcc program or the MBA program.
Visiting students and Washburn University students not seeking a BBA degree, minor, or certificate offered by the School of Business are welcome to enroll in most undergraduate courses offered by the School of Business (unless otherwise designated) provided they, like BBA students, meet the course, hours, and GPA prerequisites for the course as noted in the class schedule and Washburn University catalog, up to a limit of 30 hours of course credit in accounting and business before being admitted to the School of Business. Questions should be directed to an Academic Advisor in the School of Business office. Final determination as to whether prerequisites have been met resides in the Dean’s Office. Note: The prerequisites of a course include the prerequisites of its prerequisite courses.
