General Education Requirements


Requirements for the major in Business Analytics (B.A.):

Students must earn a cumulative average of 2.000 or better in all coursework toward their major.

Please Note:

Students must get PRIOR written permission to transfer in credit once they have matriculated at Loras. Students wishing to take a summer school class on another campus must get written permission from the Dean of the School of Business or their designee BEFORE taking the class. If a student has taken courses on other campuses and then transfers to Loras the Dean of the School of Business or their designee may make a determination of those transfer credits.

Since students who are double majoring within the School of Business will not be taking L.BUS 490  more than once, they need to complete an additional upper level course in either major to replace the second seminar course when applicable.
