Students may take Managerial Communication (BA 200), Introduction to Marketing (MKTG 360), and Introduction to Organizations (MGMT 340), without having been admitted to the College of Business Administration. However, since we give registration priority to UIC Business students first, you must put your name on a waitlist for these courses. We review the waitlist one week prior to the beginning of each term and based on remaining availability in the classes, we will notify you by email if you can register for the course. Register right away because space will not be held for you.
