The Pre-Business program is a first-time freshman year program operated by the Fox School of Business and Management and the School of Sport, Tourism and Hospitality Management (STHM). The program is designed to prepare students to successfully transition to the academic rigors of an undergraduate business degree program.

Pre-Business students will take several foundation courses required by the Bachelor of Business Administration degree program, while gaining access to quality resources and services to help them effectively navigate their first year at Temple. The Pre-Business program leverages a network of assistance programs at the University to provide students a greater opportunity for scholastic achievement.

Pre-Business students will be eligible to submit a Change of Program Request form to the Fox School of Business and Management at the completion of their freshman year, following the successful completion of the following four Fox School of Business and Management foundation courses and achievement of a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.67:

ENG 0802Analytical Reading and Writing4
or ENG 0812 Analytical Reading and Writing: ESL
HRM 1101Leadership and Organizational Management3

Pre-Business students are also required to complete STHM 1113 and either STHM 1211 or STHM 1311, which will count as free electives if the Pre-Business student transitions to the Fox School of Business and Management after the freshman year.
