Business Law concentration
Explore the relevant and specific legal topics that underpin and inform the business world.
Completion of the Business Law concentration does not require pre-approval or special admission. If you would like to pursue this concentration, complete a total of 12 credits of business law-related courses as listed below.
The 12 credits also count toward fulfillment of your electives requirement, but note that COMM and COHR courses cannot be counted as non-Commerce electives. If the courses you take for the concentration overlap with the courses you take for an option, you can double count a maximum of 3 credits of coursework toward concentration and option requirements in your degree.
After you've applied to graduate, we'll provide instructions for how to declare the concentration so that it will appear on your academic transcript.
