Course Numbering System

The first digit of the SHA course number is indicative, in most cases, of the level at which the course would normally be taken, i.e.:

1: First-year students/introduction
2: Second-year students
3: Third-year students
4: Fourth-year students
6: Graduate electives
7: Courses required for the MMH degree
8: MS
9: PhD

This, however, is not ironclad; upper-class students will be found in 1000- and 2000-level courses, and undergraduates may be enrolled in 6000-level offerings. The determining factor is the prerequisites/limitations statement for the course in question.

The second digit of the SHA course number designates the academic area within the school:

0: Service Operations Management

1: Entrepreneurship Management, Organizational Behavior, and Strategy

2: Finance, Accounting, and Real Estate Development
3: Food and Beverage Management
4: Marketing and Service Marketing
5: Properties Development and Management
6: Management Communication
7: Information Systems
8: Employment Relations, Human Resources and Law

The third and fourth digits of the SHA course number indicate a specific course within the area of instruction.
