The Department of French and Francophone Studies offers a Business coursework program for French majors. The coursework consists of the following concentrations: Accounting, Finance, Management, Marketing or International Business. Further information can be found in the Undergraduate Bulletin and the McDonough School of Business website. 

Business Program Requirements

The FLL Business coursework program is available to majors in a modern foreign language or linguistics only. The Business coursework consists of 15–16 courses, and is the functional equivalent of a second major. Students pursuing the Business coursework may not take more business courses than the program requires. The requirements are outlined below.

FLL students interested in business but not interested in the Business coursework program might consider the Business Administration Minor instead; all students in the College may apply for the Business Administration Minor.

The second language requirement is waived for students in the Business Coursework Program.
