Why do the cal state campuses have different math requirements for business majors

<p>California Polytechnic San Luis Obispo requires Business calculus I and elementary stats
California Polytechnic Pomona requires Business calculus I and Elementary stats
San Diego State university requires Finite Math, Business Calculus, and Elem Stats
Sonoma State University requires Elem Stats and finite Math
California state University Fullerton requires Business Calculus
California State University Fresno requires finite math and elem stats
California State University Sacramento requires elem stats and business calculus
California State University Northridge requires elem stats and business calculus
California State university Chico requires finite math and elem stats
California State university Channels Islands requires business calculus
california state university San Bernardino requires elem stats and college algebra
California State university Bakersfield requires finite math and elem stats
California State University Monterey Bay requires finite math and elem stats
California State University San Marcos requires business calculus
California State University Long Beach requires business calculus and elem stats
California State University Dominguez Hills requires elem stats and finite math
California State University East Bay requires elem stats and business calculus
California State University L.A requires elem stats and finite math
Humboldt State University requires Elem stats
California state university Stanislaus requires elem stats and finite math
San Francisco State University requires Elem stats and business calculus
San Jose State University requires Elem stats and business Calculus</p>

<p>Out of the 23 CSU campuses only 22 offer a business major with various concentration. The 1 CSU that dosen't have a business Program is Cal Maritime Academy.</p>

<p>These 10 CSU require no calculus for any major under business. Although, they all require Statistics, Finite math, or both. Those 10 CSU's are: Sonoma State, CSU Domingiez Hills, CSU Los Angeles, CSU San Bernardino, CSU Stanislaus, CSU Bakerfield, CSU Fresno, CSU Chico, CSU Monterey Bay, Humbolt State.</p>

<p>There are 12 CSUs who require Calculus by itself or calculus along with statistics, finite math or both. Those 12 CSU are: CSU East Bay, CSU Long Beach, CSU Fullerton, San Diego State, CSU Channel Islands, CSU Northridge, CSU San Marcos, San Francisco State, San Jose State, Cal Poly Pomona, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, and CSU Sacramento</p>

<p>This is what each CSU requires of any business major whether in marketing,management, finance,accounting,or computers. Why does some CSU's have higher math requirements than others for their business majors.</p>

<p>because some are better schools than others...</p>

<p>Out of the 10 CSUs that don't require calculus for business majors; only 3 are NOT AACSB accredited. The other 6 that don't require calculus are AACSB accredited.</p>

<p>Out of the 12 CSUs that do require Calculus of business majors; only 2 are not AACSB accredited.</p>

<p>17 of the 23 CSU campuses are AACSB accredited. 1 of the 23 not AACSB accredited is Cal maritime Academy, but they don't have a business program. So out of the 22 CSUs that do have business programs, 17 are accredited by AACSB.</p>

<p>So are you saying that a school that dosen't require calculus of business majors are bad?</p>

<p>Forgetting about requirements, I would never hire anyone who did not take at least calc 2 let alone calc at all. If your goal is getting as good a job as possible after college, which IMO should be every business major's goal, take hard classes and get A's in all of them because you will need that and you will need to network your ass off to get a good job out of any CSU.</p>

<p>All of the CSUs don't require Calculus 2 for business majors. However, many require Business Calculus. You won't hire anyone that hasn't taken Calc 2. Well that seems to be a bit stupid. Business Calculus is good enough for business majors. I don't think the CSUs that don't require calculus at all are bad either. Because they all require at-least Business Statistics which have an intermediate algebra prerequisite.</p>

<p>Probably because the curriculum has some classes that require some level of calculus (likely econ). Also, probably because some CSU business programs are more impacted than others.</p>

<p>I had to take Calc 2 for the Biz/Econ major at UCLA and mostly it was because its an impacted major so they like to make things for us as difficult as possible to weed out students.</p>

<p>I took introductory micro and macro econ and there was no calculus involved in those courses.</p>
