UCSD does not offer a B.A. in Business Administration. Students interested in Business have the option of completing a major in general areas of interest and complement them with a business, accounting or entrepreneurship minor.Starting in the fall of 2015, the International Studies Program, in coordination with the Rady School, will offer a International Studies - International Business major. Students interested in pursuing this major should contact the International Studies Program for more information. Details relating to the major requirements can be found on their website.
The Accounting, Business, and Entrepreneurship & Innovation minors are open to all UC San Diego students from any major or college. Please consult with your college academic advisor before declaring a minor in order to ensure that you will not exceed the maximum unit limitation by pursuing a minor.
You can declare the Accounting, Business, or Entrepreneurship & Innovation minor using the Major/Minor tool on Tritonlink. The minors are listed as “M070- Accounting,” “M074- Business,” and "M077 - Entrepreneurship & Innovation." There is no application process and you can declare at any time. You do not need to declare before you start taking the classes. When asked for the subject code, use “MGT.” For the institution, use UC San Diego (or the name of the community college if you took a course there). For course code, list the course number (for example 5, 131A, 131B, etc.). For the business minor electives, you should list the electives you plan to take. List all of the classes you have taken toward the minor and all of the classes you still plan to take for the minor. However, you may change your electives later on and do not need department approval to do so.
A maximum of two lower division classes can be applied toward the minor. Students must take all required classes for a letter grade, earn a C- or better, and earn an overall minor GPA of 2.0 or better to satisfy the minor requirements.
Note: Students pursuing the International Studies - International Business major cannot declare a Business Minor or the Entrepreneurship & Innovation Minor. Too many classes in those minors overlap with the major. However, students can declare the Accounting Minor while pursuing the International Studies - International Business major.

Entrepreneurship and Innovation
Note: Community college classes from outside of California can be petitioned for credit. Use this petition form and deliver it to the Rady Undergrad Advising office with the syllabus attached.;ECON4/MGT4: Financial Accounting is a class which must be petitioned to the Economics Department. Our department (Rady) does not accept online courses for Rady minor credit. For our department, all community college courses are lower division.
We do not allow students with lower division standing to take our upper division courses. The only exception we consider are students who, including work-in-progress, are less than one course away from 90 units. If you have reached 87 units, please contact us via VAC to be cleared of prerequisites for particular courses. In your message, please indicate what course you are trying to enroll. Rady may limit what courses you are preauthorized for based on enrollment. Please note Rady offers the core ISIB courses multiple times a year. As a sophomore, you will have plenty of opportunities to take these courses.
Unfortunately, we are unable to bypass the waiting list to allow you to enroll. Oftentimes class sizes are limited by the sheer size of the room.
The business and entrepreneurship minors combine a lot of the classes and the concepts that you can learn as part of your ISIB major. Minoring in entrepreneurship or business would therefore be redundant. Due to its curricular overlap, the Registrar’s office WILL NOT recognize your entrepreneurship or business minor program at the time of graduation.
CPA requirements are not about what your major is; instead, it is about what courses you have taken and if you have fulfilled the prerequisites for either the exam or the license. While Rady does not provide transcript review for CPA, we are happy to review your self-assessment and recommend courses that may help you fulfill your requirements.
