The largest applying class to date of 310 students will begin interviews for entrance into the Neeley School of Business on Saturday, Lynn Cole, assistant dean of undergraduate academics, said.
Cole said the school will look for well-rounded students with great academic qualities. Students usually apply as a sophomore to declare a business major and take upper level courses, according to the Neeley School website.
Entrance applications, rÃÂ©sumÃÂ©s and cover letters were due at the end of January, and students typically receive notification of their acceptance by the end of spring break in March.
To be eligible, students must complete 12 classes for lower division requirements with a minimum GPA of 2.5, Cole said. In addition to completing the interview with a local business professional, applicants also must complete Microsoft Office certification in Word, Excel and PowerPoint, she said.
