A Student-Designed Option in Business Administration is available for those students whose interests are not fully satisfied by any of the other currently available options in Business Administration. Students desiring a self-designed option must identify a faculty sponsor and submit to that sponsor a standard written proposal describing their objectives and intended program of study. After faculty approval, the proposal must receive approval from the Academic Director of Undergraduate Business Programs and the Paul College Dean's Office.
Students considering this option should begin to plan for it no later than the second semester of their Sophomore year. The formal application deadline is October 15 of a student's Junior year; students must have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0.
