I just recently got provisionally accepted in CSULB as a Business Econ Major. I will be transferring with a 3.56 GPA if I get a 4.0 this semester (Which I am on track for).
I was originally looking at Graduate school for Economics but did some research and saw the extensive Math requirements. I transferred into this program from my local CC with Math 178 (Business Calc) as the higest completed math, and I have yet to take Pre Calculus which puts me well behind the curve. So I have decided to pursue a MBA program after getting a bachelors instead.
So what is the difference between 300 and 400 clases at CSULB? At CSU-LB, would it be wiser if I took the higher 400 classes as the electives (485 Econometrics) instead of a low 300s class (320 Money and Banking)? Are there certain electives that MBA programs approve of? I plan on minoring in Finance. Will this minor hurt or hinder my chances of getting into a MBA program?
I understand GPA is important so I will be shooting for a 4.0 @ CSULB. I will also be attempting to land an internship while in school, and working on the tests that are required for an MBA program. What I am most concerned with at this time is choosing the correct undergraduate workload that will prepare me for the MBA courses.
Any insight on this issue would be greatly appreciated.
