Business Minor


The business minor is intended primarily for students pursuing majors outside the school of business that also have some interest in business studies. Also, students that began as business majors, but then decided to complete a major outside the School of Business, are good candidates for the minor.

The business minor provides students with a good overview of key principles and methods in economics, accounting, marketing, finance, and management. Because business studies often rely on quantitative analysis, students must meet the math requirements described below.

Admission to the minor is competitive; see admissions requirements below.
