General Management AOS[edit]

18 credits required. 12 must be UL.

You need to complete at least one course from three of the following four areas: Accounting, Finance, Management, and Marketing.

You do not necessarily need an UL credit from each category so long as the total number of required credits is met. For instance, you may be able to do 4 UL accounting courses + 1 LL Finance course, and 1 LL Management course. However, in order to minimize potential issues, it is generally recommended that you choose at least 1 UL course from each of the three categories that you've chosen. In this case, you might choose 2 Accounting UL courses, 2 Accounting LL courses, 1 UL Finance course, and 1 UL Management course.
