Meet Kristine.

As the Director of Undergraduate Studies, Kristine works with prospective, incoming, and current students in a variety of ways, including advising for the College of Business programs. Business students of all levels are advised by Kristine and her outstanding team of peer advisors.

What is Advising?

A meeting with an advisor helps prepare you for the road ahead. Advisors will work with you to develop a four-year plan, determine the best courses to take for the coming term, and help solve problems related to registration and course scheduling. We suggest meeting with an advisor at least once per year.

Why be Advised?

Regular advising helps ensure students are on track for graduation. Advisors in the COB help students find the appropriate courses to take to fulfill degree requirements and make sure they are aware of the most efficient path to graduation. Advisors can also provide advice on double majoring, minoring, and more.

Why Business?

Earning a business degree provides endless opportunities. Students in business can work as politicians, in healthcare, as entrepreneurs, for large companies and small companies, for non-profits, and more. Students in business often pursue graduate work in the MBA program, law school, and even medical school.

What Are My Options?

The College of Business offers the following degree programs:

How Do I Declare?

To declare your major, we suggest scheduling an appointment with the advising office. If you are certain you do not need advising, you can email cobadvis@isu.edu with the following information:

Dishonest conduct in any form is unacceptable. Behavior involving cheating, plagiarizing, or similar activities may result in dismissal from class, failing grades, or other disciplinary action.

The student handbook states, "Faculty members are responsible for deciding academic dishonesty cases which occur in their classes, except when a case involves additional violation of University policies. Such other violations may be resolved under the Student Code of Conduct, Rights, Responsibilities and Judicial Structure or other applicable procedures." Read the entire COB Policy on Academic Integrity.

Additional information as to what constitutes cheating and plagiarizing as well as penalties that may be imposed are in the ISU Faculty/Staff Handbook.

The Office of Student Affairs oversees student conduct and you should familiarize yourself with the ISU Student Code of Conduct.

How do I select my class?

Before registering for classes, students are encouraged to meet with an advisor to discuss possible classes and career planning. Most freshman should include an English course and a math course in their first semester schedule. In addition, the university provides students with course of study MAPs (major academic plans). These helps students plan their schedules and visualize what classes could be taken in a semester and visualize their courses within a major.

Total credit load is dependent on the time available, work scheduling, family obligations, athletics, and circumstantial obligations. Additionally, the relative difficulty of the courses that you choose can influence the total credits you may want to register for.

For more information, please see the MAPs/suggested schedules and the math and English placement information.

When can I add or drop classes for the semester?

Schedule adjustments can be made during the first ten days of the semester, with the exception of early/late 8 week courses. Courses can be added or dropped without record appearing on a transcript. After this deadline, students may withdraw from courses, which will appear on the transcript. Please note that there is a later deadline for withdrawing from classes. Please see the academic calendar for current information.

How can I add or drop classes?

In order to add or drop a course, follow these steps:

  1. Log into your BengalWeb.
  2. When you are logged in, click on the "Academic Tools" tab.
  3. On the right side of the page, under "Registration Tools", select "Add or Drop Classes".
  4. Select the semester in which you are looking to register, and click Submit.
  5. From here, you may click Class Search. You may begin looking for the course in which you intend to enroll. When you find your intended class, click View Class Sections.
  6. To enroll in the course click in the box on the left of the class name and click Register.
  7. This should register you for the course. If for any reason you cannot register, consult the course catalog to ensure you meet the requirements for the course. If you do and still cannot register, please contact the Director of Undergraduate Studies at the information below.

How do I find out what textbooks I need?

  1. Log into your BengalWeb.
  2. When you are logged in, click on the "Academic Tools" tab.
  3. On the right side, under "Registration Tools", select "My Concise Schedule".
  4. On the bottom of that page, select "Buy Pocatello Books" or "Buy Idaho Falls Books."
  5. This takes you to the bookstore's website, and it shows you the books required for your courses and those suggested by the bookstore.
  6. If you intend to purchase the book from a different source, be sure to use the ISBN number to search for it on other websites to ensure you get the correct edition.

Instructors also will post the required course material in the course syllabus, which is usually dispersed on the first day of class.

Repeating class policy.

The College of Business requires that you must pass every course fulfilling core, major, or specific graduation requirements with a grade of at least a C-. The C- requirement also extends to satisfying prerequisites for all College of Business courses.

No College of Business course may be repeated more than once except by petition approved by the department chair.



Why do I need an advisor?

A meeting with an advisor helps prepare you for the road ahead. Advisors will work with you to develop a graduation plan, determine the best courses to take for the coming term, and help solve problems related to registration and course scheduling. We suggest meeting with an advisor at least once per year.

Regular advising helps ensure students are on track for graduation. Advisors in the COB help students find the appropriate courses to take to fulfill degree requirements and make sure they are aware of the most efficient path to graduation. Advisors can also provide advice on double majoring, minoring, and more.

How does advising work?

All College of Business students are advised by Kristine McCarty and her team of peer advisors. To schedule an appointment, use the “Meet with an Advisor” link on this page.

Advising is a requirement of the College of Business in all BA courses (BA 1110, BA 2210, BA 3310, and BA 4410). However, students are able to meet with an advisor more frequently, if they wish.

At a student's first advising appointment, the advisor will help the student work up a graduation plan that shows all coursework by semester remaining until graduation. The advisor will make the student aware of important prerequisites and course sequences, as well as provide advice on workload.

In future appointments, the advisor will make adjustments to the previous plan, if needed, and help make any adjustments for the coming semesters. Advisors can also help with petitions and elective course selection.

Typically, a student is assigned a faculty mentor during their sophomore year or when they take BA 2210. The faculty mentor is a faculty member from the student's area of study who can provide advice on elective courses for their major, information about the field, and career advice. Faculty mentors typically do not advise on specific graduation requirements (number of credits required, general education courses, etc.), but some may be able to. If you have questions about specific graduation requirements, it is suggested that you meet with Kristine or a peer advisor.

How to prepare for advising.

To prepare for your advising appointment, you will need to be familiar with your degree and program requirements using the course catalog or Degree Works. You should also have an idea of what courses you would like to take in the coming term and how many credits you're comfortable taking. If you have upcoming commitments or a great deal of extracurricular activities, tell your advisor so that she can help create a schedule with the appropriate workload.

What is the course catalog?

All degree-seeking students must fulfill departmental, General Education, and general graduation requirements for their particular fields of study. These requirements are listed in the course catalog-- a student must take the courses outlined in the course catalog for their particular program. Deviations from the catalog must be handled by petition and may not be approved. To view the current catalog click here.

It is assumed upon admission that a student understands all information in the catalog. It is the student's responsibility to be aware of degree requirements, ISU policies, and all other information contained in the catalog. Advisors and faculty are here to help, but it is up to the student to ensure they are on track.

What is a catalog year?

A student's catalog year is typically the year they start at ISU, but it may change when declaring, changing, or adding a major. A student can typically choose to use any catalog year that they were enrolled during, as long as it does not precede their graduation year by more than eight years.

Where can I find my catalog year?

A student's catalog year is listed in Degree Works, which is accessed through BengalWeb.

Where can I find the course catalog?

The course catalog is no longer printed. The current course catalog can be found at this link: http://coursecat.isu.edu/undergraduate/

Previous course catalogs are found here: http://coursecat.isu.edu/previouscatalogs/

What is the faculty mentor program?

The College of Business assigns each student a faculty mentor, typically during the student's sophomore year or when they take BA 2210. Faculty mentors are faculty members who meet one-on-one with students to discuss careers in business, helpful coursework (such as electives or minors that might relate to the field), research opportunities, and the student's major. Faculty mentors can help guide students on their career aspirations, providing suggestions on industry resources, interesting books or articles, and more. The goal of this program is to help students become better acquainted with a faculty member in their field early on in their academic career.

What don't faculty mentors do?

Faculty mentors are not intended to be academic advisors. Though some are comfortable discussing program requirements, most focus on helping students with field/industry-related info. If you need academic advising, please email cobadvis@isu.edu.

Why do I need a faculty mentor?

Faculty mentors help to better acquaint you with your major, provide career advice, and are a great resource for information about your major. Beyond that, developing relationships with faculty early on will help you down the road when you need a letter of recommendation for a job, internship, or graduate school. Faculty are more willing to write recommendations if they know who you are! Mentors can also be valuable network connections - potentially helping you get a job or internship.

How do I get a faculty mentor?

Faculty mentors are assigned when the student takes BA 2210. If you haven't been assigned a mentor yet and would like one, please contact Kristine McCarty at cobadvis@isu.edu.

What should I ask my faculty mentor?

Faculty mentors provide a great resource for you and can help you with career advice, information about your field or industry, and more. Here are some questions to ask to help you get to know your faculty mentor and learn some interesting information!

  • How did you become interested in your field?
  • What is the most interesting part of your field?
  • What kind of research do you do?
  • What advice do you have for students majoring in [insert your major here]?
  • What schools did you attend and how did you choose them?
  • For this field, do you recommend getting a master’s degree or a PhD? Both?
  • What are some good resources to find out information about this field [or a particular industry]?
  • What is the best thing I can do as an undergraduate to open up more opportunities in this field?
  • Are there any clubs or organizations that would be interesting or helpful for me to join?

There are many, many more - this is just a start! Remember that professors are people, too. They have interests and hobbies and lives! Get to know them, and help them get to know you. Interacting with faculty is so valuable for your future career. Use these questions as a starting point and build from there.



For May and December graduation, the application will not be accepted after the mid-term week of the student's graduation semester. For August graduation, the application deadline is the last day of the spring semester.

Visit this page for instructions on how to apply for graduation.

Undergraduate and graduate students officially admitted into their major in the College of Business are required to have a laptop computer.

Both exposure to and mastery of technology prepare students to excel in today's technology-driven business environment and is expected by employers.

What and How to Purchase

Because the computer is a required part of your education, the amount of financial aid that you are eligible for may have changed. You can check with the Financial Aid office to see if you have been affected.

Hardware

The laptop hardware requirements are relatively straightforward: it should be capable of effectively running the software listed below.

Other than that ability, the most important feature to consider when purchasing your computer is the battery life. Most classrooms do not have sufficient power outlets to allow everyone to plug in their computer; therefore, your computer may be required to run off of battery power for several hours.

Manufacturers, such as HP, Dell, and even Apple make suitable notebook computers. You can link to a number of manufacturers' websites to see what educational discounts they offer by going to the ISU Purchasing site.

Software

Your computer must have...

  • The latest version of Microsoft Windows.
  • The latest version of MS Office, including MS Access (note that many packaging options for MS Office do not include MS Access, so make sure you get one that includes it).
  • Anti-virus software (AVG Antivirus is available for free for personal use)

The university has made arrangements with Follet, the company that runs the campus bookstore in the PSUB, to supply some Microsoft software (including MS Windows Professional and MS Office Professional) at SIGNIFICANT discounts. The price for MS Office Professional, for example, is $79.99. You can even order online through Follet's online store.

What is a major?

A major is a student's primary program of study at a university. The College of Business has eight majors:

  • Accounting
  • Business Informatics
  • Economics
  • Finance
  • General Business
  • Health Informatics
  • Management
  • Marketing

A major in each of these areas (except Economics) earns the student a Bachelor of Business Administration. Students studying economics can earn a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science.

What is a minor?

A minor is an optional, secondary program of study, typically around six classes. Students can minor in a field inside or outside the College of Business. Minors can serve a variety of purposes, from augmenting your degree by specializing it more toward a particular industry or simply by adding variety by allowing you to study an additional subject area that you are interested in.

The College of Business has several minors:

  • Business Administration (33 credits, not available to business majors)
  • Business (18 credits, not available to business majors)
  • Economics
  • Informatics
  • Marketing (not available to business majors)

What is an emphasis area?

An area of emphasis is a specialization within a major. Students may select an area of emphasis to be combined with their major, but it is not required. Listed below are a brief description of the emphasis and which majors can be applied to the emphasis.

  • Human Resource Management (provides students with a deeper understanding of issues faced by administrators, management personnel, and other positions to manage employees. This emphasis can be applied to Management majors only.)
  • Entrepreneurship and Small Business (take courses that relate to managing and owning a small business. This emphasis can be applied to Finance, Management, and Marketing majors.)
  • Operations and Production Management (gives students a series of courses to develop management skills within a production setting, such as industrial production, production budgeting, and managing projects within an organization. This emphasis can be applied to the following majors: Accounting, Finance, General Business, Informatics, Management, and Marketing.

Can I major in more than one area?

Yes! Students can major in multiple fields. To major in two fields within the College of Business, please schedule an appointment with your advisor so that she can help you develop a plan of study for both fields. Some courses will overlap, particularly if you are majoring in management, marketing, or finance.

What is the flexible BBA?

The flexible BBA is available to students majoring in finance, management, or marketing. It allows students to craft a major that suits their career goals by allowing them to take upper level electives from other disciplines. It also makes it much easier to double major.

What if I don't know what to major in?

That's okay! Many students are unsure of what to major in when starting school, and many change their major multiple times. If you are interested in business, the good news is that you have a couple of years before you need to decide -- each business major takes the same set of core classes, which allows you to explore multiple areas before making a choice.

Students should also use the General Education courses required by ISU to explore new interest areas.

In addition, there is a one-credit elective course called COUN 1150: Career and Life Planning that helps students determine their interest areas and what careers and majors might best suit their skills and interests.

You are more than welcome to meet with an advisor who can help give an overview of many of the areas. Your advisor can also suggest faculty members to speak with regarding different fields.

What can I expect to learn as a business major?

All business majors should have a solid foundation in each of the discipline areas (accounting, finance, information systems, management, and marketing), as well as be capable of solving open-ended business problems and effectively communicating and working as part of a team.

Specifically, the College of Business student should be able to:

  • Be effective communicators.
  • Use quantitative and analytical techniques to solve business problems.
  • Describe and propose solutions to ethical, global, and cultural issues that arise in business settings.
  • Apply key concepts to make business decisions.

Associate of Science in Business

What is the ASB?

The Associate of Science in Business is a 2-year degree that students can earn on their way to earning the Bachelor of Business Administration or as a stand alone degree. The requirements for the Associate of Science in Business are nearly identical to the requirements for the first two years of the BBA, so all students are encouraged to get the Associate of Science in Business degree.

Why should I get the ASB?

If a student has to take a break from school, an Associate of Science in Business looks far better on a resume than no degree. Furthermore, if a student needs to transfer schools, it is much easier to transfer an Associate's degree than it is to transfer credits on a course- by- course basis.

What are the requirements for the ASB?

For the 2015-2016 catalog year, students pursuing the Associate of Science in Business degree must complete the University General Education Requirements (8 of the 9 General Education Objectives, a minimum of 36 credits--see the General Education Requirements in the Academic Information section of the catalog).

The following business courses must be completed:

  • BA 1110: The World of Business, 3 credits
  • ACCT 2201: Principles of Accounting I, 3 credits
  • ACCT 2202: Principles of Accounting II, 3 credits
  • ECON 2201: Principles of Macroeconomics, 3 credits
  • ECON 2202: Principles of Microeconomics, 3 credits
  • INFO 1101: Digital Information Literacy, 3 credits
  • MGT 2216: Business Statistics, 3 credits
  • 6 credits of business electives (can be upper level business electives)

A student must earn a total of 71 credits.

What is Math 1199?

MATH 1199 is an Accelerated Math Placement course that allows students to move from MATH 0015 to MATH 1143 in one semester. MATH 1199 does take quite a time commitment, and it is hard work, but it is often worth it for students who would like to save time and get through their coursework efficiently. Students must begin in MATH 0015, regardless of whether or not they have placed into a higher course. In order to move past the one of the math sections in the class (0015, 0025, 1108, etc.), a student must earn at least a 90% grade on the exit exam. Attendance is mandatory.

Who should take Math 1199?

Students who test into MATH 0015, MATH 0025, or MATH 1108 may be good candidates for the MATH 1199 course. In addition, students who have repeatedly taken MATH 1108 and MATH 1143 might also consider taking MATH 1199.

How do I sign up for Math 1199?

You can sign up for MATH 1199 via BengalWeb just like any other course. Prior to signing up for the course, we encourage students to contact Randa Kress at kresrand@isu.edu, who oversees MATH 1199 courses, to see if it would be an appropriate fit.

Math placement?

Math requirements vary by major. Consult with an advisor before selecting a math course or sequence.

ACT, SAT, or Math COMPASS scores determine which math course(s) you are allowed enrollment.

Two other considerations for correct selection of math courses:

Identify the math course you need for your major and the appropriate math sequence

Ask for help if you need it!

What is a course override?

An override is needed when a student is trying to register for a course and the system will not allow the student to register. This happens from time to time for a variety of reasons.

When is a course override given?

A course override can be given when a student has met the appropriate prerequisites for the course.

Why do we have prerequisites?

Prerequisites are in place to ensure that students have learned the appropriate content in order to be successful in future courses. Many courses rely on information learned in previous coursework.

How can I get a course override?

To request a course override, please fill out the information on this sheet and submit it to the Student Services Office in BA 510. Overrides will not be granted unless you have met the prerequisites. If you have not met the prerequisites but feel you have a compelling case for an override, it is suggested that you contact the faculty member that teaches the course in order to get approval for an override.

Please note that we cannot give overrides for courses outside of the College of Business.

What is a credit limit override?

Students are allowed to register for up to 18 credits per semester. If a student wishes to register for more than 18 credits in a semester, the student must receive an override.

When is a course override given?

Most Colleges require permission from the Dean. The College of Business strongly encourages students to examine their course load, work schedule, extracurricular activities, and other time commitments before setting their schedule, but the COB believes that the student is the best judge of their ability to succeed

How can I get a credit limit override?

Please fill out the information on this sheet. You will be notified via email whether or not it was approved.

Is there an admission process to the College of Business?

There is no formal admission process to the College of Business, though students are strongly encouraged to meet with the Director of Undergraduate Studies (their COB advisor) and/or their faculty mentor each year to ensure the student is making accurate progress. Many upper level courses have multiple pre-requisites, so it is important for students to ensure they are taking the appropriate courses in the appropriate order.

Why are there course prerequisites?

Many courses teach new content that relies on a student understanding content learned in a previous course. If a student takes a course that they have not met the prerequisites for, they may be unsuccessful. Meeting the prerequisites ensure that a student will have the appropriate level of knowledge before advancing in their program.

What are the prerequisites for FIN 3315?

The prerequisites for FIN 3315, which is a core requirement for the College of Business, are ACCT 2201 and 2202, ECON 2201 and 2202, and MGT 2216. In turn, FIN 3315 is one of the prerequisites to the capstone course, MGT 4460.

What are the prerequisites for MGT 3329?

The prerequisites for MGT 3329 is MGT 2217. INFO 3301 is a pre- or corequisite. In turn, MGT 3329 is one of the prerequisites to the capstone course, MGT 4460.

What are the prerequisites for MGT 4460?

Students typically take MGT 4460, the capstone course, in their final semester. The prerequisites are INFO 3301 (formerly CIS 3301), FIN 3315, MGT 3312, MGT 3329 and MKTG 2225. Students must also be at senior standing.



How to apply for scholarships?

Many scholarships for Business majors are available. There are a variety of requirements for these scholarships. Some are intended for students with specific profiles, and others are simply based on need or on academic achievement. For more information, refer to the Bengal Online Scholarship System.

Course fees explained?

The College assesses fees on a number of College of Business courses. In some cases, the fees are used to purchase technology used in the classrooms (projectors, DVD players, etc.) and to fund the ongoing support and maintenance of this equipment. In other cases, the fees are used to directly support the activities of a particular course by providing such things as tutors, special software, or special equipment used in the course.

Beta Gamma Sigma

Beta Gamma Sigma is the honorary society for schools accredited by the AACSB. An invitation to lifetime membership in Beta Gamma Sigma is extended to juniors and seniors in the spring of each year. Membership is limited to the top ten percent of each class.

Beta Gamma Sigma offers students a lifetime opportunity to network with other members nationwide and participate in the Society's programs throughout your career.

College of Business Fellows

The Fellows represent the very best of our undergraduate business majors based on three dimensions: academics, leadership, and attitude. Past Fellows are now working at Big 4 accounting firms, attending law school and MBA programs, and working at banks, insurance companies, and a variety of companies in Idaho and around the world.

The College of Business executive committee (the College's deans, directors, and department chairpersons) chooses the fellows, based on faculty recommendations. There are over 1,000 business majors at ISU, so the 10-12 students typically chosen each year represent the best one percent of our undergraduates.



You will probably spend two to three hours a week outside of class for every credit hour of a class. Class demands and expectations will not be compromised so that you can meet your other demands, so plan your credit-hour load accordingly. It is important to balance your school, work, and family/social time.
