Minors in Business
The minors offered by the School of Business are designed to offer a basic understanding of a variety of business subjects for students looking to further their knowledge base within that subject. Coursework for these minors are typically completed in junior and senior years, however many minors require prerequisite coursework which should be started as early as a students first year. Students may earn only one minor in business disciplines. A student may earn a second minor if it is offered jointly by the School of Business and another School or College, and all coursework used to satisfy that second minor is from non-Business coursework.
