Division of Business & Economics
Doug Gambrall, Ph.D., Chair

Students must earn a cumulative average of 2.00 or better in all L.ACC, L.BUS, and L.CIT courses and complete a minimum of 12 credits of upper level courses in their major (beyond core and supporting) at Loras College, including the capstone course.

Please Note:
Students must get PRIOR written permission to transfer in credit once they have matriculated at Loras. Students wishing to take a summer school class on another campus must get written permission from the Chair BEFORE taking the class. If a student has taken courses on other campuses and then transfers to Loras the Division chairperson may make a determination of those transfer credits.

Internships cannot be used to fulfill electives for any major or minor in this Division.

Students should complete their major’s math requirement (L.MAT-113: College Algebra or L.MAT-117 Pre-Calculus or above) by the end of their sophomore year. Since students who are double majoring within the Business & Economics Division will not be taking L.BUS-490 more than once, they need to complete an additional upper level course in either major to replace the second capstone course.
