Class Registration Instructions

Class of 2021

If you are graduating in December 2021, this will be your final advising session this spring to determine which courses you must take this fall to meet your degree requirements.

Class of 2022

As you’re gearing up for the two remaining semesters at Olin, you’ll complete any remaining core requirements and upper-level non-business distributions, but the main focus of your senior year will be on coursework in your major(s).

While the BSBA advising team carefully checks your degree audit to ensure that you meet all necessary requirements for graduation, we expect that you are aware of the remaining requirements. It is possible to adjust your senior year schedule, but you should be thoughtful and intentional about it to ensure you meet all graduation requirements. When in doubt, please consult with your academic advisor.

Accounting Majors:

You should enroll in ACCT 464: Auditing and either ACCT 466: Financial Statement Analysis or ACCT 467: Income Tax Fundamentals this fall. You could take all three, but this might depend on your specific career plans.   

MACC Students:

If you are admitted to the MACC program, you should discuss your Accounting selections with your MACC advisor. If you are thinking about sitting for the CPA examination, you should confer with your MACC advisor to determine the specific requirements needed for this exam. The process for registration for both graduate and undergraduate courses will be sent out shortly to each MSP student.

Entrepreneurship Majors:

You should have completed MGT 421 and MGT 424 by now, leaving you with the task of completing electives for the major.

Economics and Strategy Majors:

You should have completed MEC 370 and MEC 470 by now leaving you to take MEC 471 this fall. MEC 400K will be offered in the spring and MEC 471 is the prerequisite for this course. If you haven’t taken MEC 470, then you can take both MEC 470 and MEC 471 this fall.

Finance Majors:

If you have not taken FIN 441 and/or FIN 448, then you MUST enroll in these classes. If you have taken FIN 441 and FIN 448, you should take FIN 451. FIN 447 and FIN 470A will be offered as well this fall. If you have not taken ACCT 3610: Intermediate Accounting 1, then you are encouraged to take this course. If you have taken ACCT 3610, you should consider taking ACCT 466: Financial Statement Analysis.

Healthcare Management Majors:

To complete this major, you should enroll in MGT 320 and MGT 321 this fall as neither course will be offered in the spring.  You can select an elective as well.

Marketing Majors:

If you have not taken MKT 378 yet, consider taking it this fall rather than waiting to take it next spring.

Choose your fall marketing electives carefully as these electives (with the exception of MKT 377: Consumer Behavior) will only be offered in the fall: MKT 400E, MKT 470E, MKT 477, and MKT 481.

Organization and Strategic Management Majors:

You should be working on the specific categories for this major. Work with your advisor to ensure that you will meet the specific requirements for this major. OB 400C, OB 400D, MGT 460G, and MGT 460H are only offered in the fall. 

Operations and Supply Chain Management Majors:

You should enroll in DAT 301E and one or two Group B electives this semester.

Class of 2022 Research Opportunity:

Honors in Management (HIM) Seminar is a two-semester sequence course that gives students the opportunity to work with senior-level faculty in a specialized format. In the fall semester, the HIM course will be team taught with various faculty members. For the spring semester, students will form teams to develop substantial research projects under the direction of one of the participating faculty for the remainder of the academic year. HIM students must successfully complete both MGT 490 and MGT 491 in order to receive the Honors in Management designation at graduation. Interested Class of 2022 students should enroll in MGT 490 and will be placed on a wait list. The BSBA office will then reach out to request a resume; a 3.5 GPA is required.

Please review your degree audit and consult with your advisor to be sure you’re on track.

Accounting Majors:
