The World of Business and Accounting for Transfers is designed for incoming transfer students who are planning to major in business or accounting and have been conditionally accepted into the School of Business. Students in this Living-Learning Community live and take a 1-credit transfer seminar on business and accounting with their community, and are introduced to the academic and social expectations of a career in business through co-curricular activities.
