Changing Your Major to Business Administration

Choosing the correct major is a very important decision. Finding the right major will play a critical role in your success here at Georgia Tech and when you enter the job market. It is not a decision that should be made without a good amount of consideration. Please read through this entire page for important information and instructions.

How To Change Your Major to BSBA or Add BSBA as a Secondary Major

The Scheller College of Business is a top business school that is nationally recognized for preparing students for the economy of the future. Since we are a business college at an engineering school, our services, processes and curriculum may be quite different than what you have experienced at Tech. In order for you to be fully prepared to enter the Scheller College of Business, all students are required to complete the following steps.

  1. Listen to our change of major information podcast. Please make sure you have your speakers on.


  2. Complete the Scheller Change of Major Podcast Information Review. This is password protected and you must listen to the podcast to access the password. 

    Complete the Podcast Information Review

  3. If you would like to continue in the process after completing the Podcast Information Review, a Scheller advisor will send you an email containing further instructions and links. Typically, you can expect this within 2 weeks after completing the Podcast Information Review, but it may be longer during busier periods of the year (Registration, Final Exams, FASETs, etc...).

  4. Register for and attend the mandatory Business Adminstration Preparation meeting. Upcoming dates and the link to register for the meeting will also be in the informational email.  
BSBA Preparation Meeting Dates

All BSBA Preperation Meetings for Summer 2021 will be virtual.  Meetings take place monthly.  Upcoming meeting dates and times will be included in the information sent to students who complete the podcast and information review steps.
