With the exception of ECO 4000, ECO 4091, ECO 4092, ECO 4093, and ECO 4094, all other 4000-level courses are communication-intensive courses. Sometimes ECO 4093 (a 3-credit special topics course) may be communication-intensive, depending on the course material. Students are required to check the course description in CUNYfirst. Courses used for the liberal arts minor in Economics cannot be counted towards the 24 credits for the BBA in Finance.
