SOPHOMORES
Class of 2022


You should have your distribution requirements almost completed. You should have also completed ACCT 2610, MEC 290, DAT 120, DAT 121, MGT 100, MGT 150A, MGT 201 and at least one additional core class by the end of this semester. If any of these classes have not been completed, you should talk with your advisor to work out a schedule for completing your requirements. 

We recommend you enroll in either two or three business classes this spring.  

For the spring semester, you should enroll in DAT 121 and MGT 201 if you have not completed these courses this semester. Taking DAT 220 this spring is highly recommended. Other options include MKT 370, FIN 340, OB 360, ACCT 2620 or MEC 292.  

The sophomore year is an important time to clarify your interest areas. Talking with your advisor to discuss your potential majors and ideas on how to complete your major interests is an important part of this process. Your advisor can also help plan course sequencing for your Olin major(s). For instance, if you plan to major in Econ and Strategy and go abroad in the spring of your junior year you MUST take MEC 370 spring of your sophomore year. As MEC 370 is only offered in the spring. 

Major(s) or minor(s) declaration will be February 14, 2020

If you think you are taking too many business classes, talk to your advisor for course strategies.
