** Suggested Math/Business Statistics Sequence for Accounting & Finance Students
Students have varying Math backgrounds when they come to UNK as freshmen. Accounting and Finance students are required to take MATH 123 applied Calculus (MATH 115 Calculus I with Analytical Geometry is also acceptable as a substitute for MATH 123). However, not all freshmen students are prepared to take a calculus class as their first math course. Most students will follow one of the following two sequences with regard to their Math and Business Statistics courses. Check with your advisor or the department chair if you have questions.
MATH 102 College algebra Fall, Freshman Yr.
MATH 123 Applied Calculus Spring, Freshman Yr.
BMGT 233 Business Statistics Fall, Sophomore Yr.
MATH 123 Applied Calculus Fall, Freshman Yr.
BGMT 233 Business Statistics Spring, Freshman Yr.
