Business Breadth

3 required CUs

This three-course requirement is designed to give students a broad sampling of business fields beyond the Business Fundamentals and a student’s primary area of concentration. Business Breadth courses must be:

  • Upper-level, non-fundamental Wharton course (with the exception of HCMG 1010, MGMT 1110, MGMT 1980, OIDD 1050¹) ²
  • From three different Wharton departments³
  • From outside of the student’s department of concentration

Business Breadth courses may not be counted toward any other requirements except for one course in the second concentration. Students should meet with their academic advisor to ensure the appropriate selection of Business Breadth courses.

Note: All Business Breadth courses must be taken for a grade, not pass/fail.


¹ Starting with Advance Registration in spring 2022, all course numbers are changing from 3 to 4 numbers/characters. In general, if the old course number was <100, the new course number will be the old number prefaced by a zero. If the old course number was >100, the new course number will be the old number with a zero appended to the end, e.g., HCMG 101 becomes HCMG 1010.
² If a student takes both LGST 1000 and LGST 1010, one of the courses may count toward Business Breadth.
³ No more than 1 CU from any department (with the exception of WH courses) may count toward Business Breadth.
