Minor in General Business

Broaden Your Business Understanding

A minor affords a traditional, well‑accepted way to recognize that a student has completed a significant body of work outside the major field. Students may wish to follow up on long time personal interests, satisfy intellectual curiosity generated by introductory courses, enrich their undergraduate experience, differentiate their individual program of study from those of fellow students, or enhance their opportunities for employment or for admission to graduate or professional schools.

For the General Business Minor:

  • students need to select at least 18 hours of business courses which meet their objectives for taking the minor
  • If courses selected have prerequisites, these must be satisfied.
  • Only juniors and seniors may enroll in 3000 or 4000 level business courses, and
  • ACCT 2010, ECON 2010, and MGMT 3010 should be included in all business minors (ECON 2010 is a prerequisite for MGMT 3010).
