A cumulative grade point average of 2.5 in the following six courses. Students are not allowed to retake courses in which they have received a grade of “C” or better in order to achieve the 2.5 requirement. Only courses with a grade of “C-” or below must be retaken. All grades are figured into the requirement. The calculation includes only SMC grades. No grade received outside SMC is included in the calculation.
To satisfy the Department of Business Administration and Economics Advanced Writing Proficiency requirement students must demonstrate writing proficiency in their chosen disciplines. This requires students to compile a portfolio of three items: a completed Linkedin profile, accepted comprehensive project paper, and a reflection essay regarding personal lessons gleaned from team work on the comprehensive project.
The Comprehensive Project in Economics requires successful completion of a major research paper as part of ECON 495 Senior Economics Seminar.
The Comprehensive Project utilizes a case study format working with faculty mentors. It provides teams of students with an integrative group learning experience and tests technical competencies, problem solving and strategic analysis skills, an awareness of ethical issues, communication and interpersonal skills, and quantitative skills. The case also requires the team to consider international and intercultural ramifications. The project culminates with written and oral presentations to department faculty and peers.
