Pre-Business classes required for standard admission

<p>Kelley lists these as the required classes for standard admission. </p>

<p>Completion of three or more of the following admissions courses:
MATH-M 118 Finite Mathematics
MATH-M 119 Brief Survey of Calculus
BUS-K 201 The Computer in Business
BUS-X 100 Introduction to Business Administration OR BUS-G 100 Business in the Information Age</p>

<p>So why are there threads talking about the difficult A-100 class for Pre-business students that they need to do well in to get into Kelley? </p>

<p>It looks like a student wouldn't even have to take Finite his/her freshman year to get into Kelley. </p>

<p>Which of these classes are the tough ones that most commonly get students? </p>


<p>The most difficult of the ones that you listed are K201 and M118. A100 needs to be taken during your freshman year because it is a prerequisite for A201 and A202 which you need to take before I-core. For admission to Kelley it is required to get B’s and A100 is a real pain. So although it may not be required from where you read. You NEED to take A100 as a freshman.</p>

<p>What is A100? I cannot find a course description for this class. Do you have to take this if you are a Direct Admit to Kelley as a freshman?</p>

<p>A100 is Basic Accounting Skills. It is a prerequisite for I-core all business students need to take it. It is an 8 week 1 hour course.</p>

<p>hkem123, here are the percentages of students who got a solid B or higher in some the weed out classes for Kelley in the Fall 2010 semester. You are right, you do not have to take both finite and calculus to get admitted to Kelley; it is probably a good idea not to take both your freshman year, despite the fact that some students actually take both the same semester. Take BUS X100 instead.</p>

<p>A100 – 37% out of 1900
X201 – 63% out of 727
M118 – 34% out of 3155
M119 – 30% out of 1863
E201 – 31% out of 1728</p>

<p>stairclimber, since your daughter is a direct admit, she would only have to get a solid C or higher in the above classes and other Icore prerequisites to meet Kelley’s requirements and be eligible to take Icore. Here are descriptions of A100 and the other Icore prerequisites.</p>

<p>Thank you Bthomp1</p>

<p>Thank you bthomp1. You are very helpful.</p>

<p>K201 is literally Microsoft Office group projects. Just pray that you get some half-decent teammates.</p>

<p>Also, it’s mind-boggling how many people except to be able to deal with money but are atrociously incompetent at basic mathematics (M118).</p>

<p>Kelley has the great advantage of having a large pool of prospective students to pick from, and the ones that don’t get in are better off not getting in.</p>
