Undergraduate Catalog 2009-2011

Minors in Business for Non-Business Majors

Minors in business require 18 credits of business courses and may be completed by students pursuing majors outside the School of Business. Students should consult with the chair of their major department to determine if a minor is required for their program.

Minors in business focus upon a specific functional area of business, such as accounting, entrepreneurship, finance, international business, management, management information systems, or marketing. Selection of specific courses is made in consultation with a School of Business faculty advisor or chair of the appropriate School of Business department. Students wishing to take a business minor should contact the department chair for the department in which they wish to focus their minor program before enrolling in any of the six courses for the minor. The five School of Business departments are Accounting, Finance, Management, Management Information Systems (MIS), and Marketing.
