D’Amore-McKim School of Business Change of Major Process

Step One: Research Your Program of Interest

We recommend the following resources to determine whether your goals and skills are a good fit for the major and career you are considering.

  • Set up a meeting with Career Development.
  • Review our description and requirements for the BS in Business Administration (or any of our combined majors), including the concentrations of interest to you.
  • Review the course catalog to read course descriptions for the classes that you would be taking for the new major.  You should be interested in the class work of your proposed major!
  • Consider the time and expense it will take to complete a business degree.
    • On the services and links tab of your myNortheastern portal, run a Degree Audit using the “Explore Options” feature to determine the remaining requirements.
    • Refer to tuition costs on the Student Financial Services website
  • Talk with business majors who are currently in the D’Amore-McKim School of Business!

Step Two: Meet An Academic Advisor

Once you’re sure you want to transfer into a BSBA program or combined major, you’ll need to schedule a meeting with the appropriate academic advisor.  Program requirements, coursework, and co-op information will be discussed during this meeting.
