5) It’s easy. Just go to the appropriate online form and enter the data. You probably know all the answers already. Management Majors should use the concentration declaration form and CM Information Technology Majors should use the track declaration form.
3) It’s fun. Well, completing the form might not be the most fun you’ve ever had, but as a declared student, you’ll be invited to informational and social gatherings with faculty in your new department and get information about internships or other special opportunities for students in your discipline.
2) It’s connective. You will then have access to the College of Management Academic Advisors who can explain the concentration or track requirements and help answer questions about degree progress toward graduation. You will also be included on communication departments have with their declared students, and will be able to meet with CM faculty mentors who can also help guide you in your concentration or track area.
1) It’s important. Over the coming months, more and more access and information will be dependent on you having declared a concentration or track in the College of Management. Once you declare your concentration or track, it will also appear on your degree audit and you will be able to track your progress toward concentration/track completion and have a list of concentration/track requirements for you.
To be eligible to declare your concentration or track, you must:
- Have earned 60 credits (here or through transfer credit)
- Completed at least one semester in the College of Management (this means anyone who started at UMB this spring, or was just admitted to CM through the Inter College Transfer Process, would not be eligible).
If you meet these eligibility requirements, you are encouraged to declare your concentration (for management majors) or track (for IT majors) today!
