The ABC is taught during a special 10-week term during summer semester. Since one year of curriculum is structured into only 10 weeks, the ABC is an extremely concentrated and intensive educational experience, demanding essentially all of a student's time and energy during those 10 weeks. Work, family events, vacations, and other outside conflicts and commitments cannot be "worked around." If a student is unable or unwilling to make that level of commitment, that student should not take the ABC but should instead satisfy the business core requirements on a course-by-course basis at the undergraduate level.
The ABC consists of seven modules (15 credits), which are viewed as separate courses. Students can take one or more of the classes.
Please note that STATS 2300 or an equivalent course is required before enrollment in the ABC program.
