Business Administration

Business minor

This Business minor is currently available to UCFV Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of General Studies and Bachelor of Kinesiology students. BCIS students may also complete a Business minor.

Requirements and procedures

Students wishing to take a minor in business must have declared and be enrolled in a major program of study (other than Business). Once enrolled in a major program of study in a degree program which permits a Business minor, students may apply to the Business Administration program for a Business minor. Acceptance to the minor in business will require the development of a program plan of study in consultation with the Business Administration program chair or program advisor.

Note: The number of students accepted to business minors may be limited due to seat availability.

Time required for program completion

Completion of a business minor would be done concurrently with completion of the bachelor’s degree in the chosen major field of study. Courses needed to fulfill prerequisite requirements can be taken without additional time for degree completion provided the student declares his/her major and minor early enough to plan for the prerequisite requirements of upper-level courses.

General requirements

30 credits required including a 100-level Economics course, plus four lower-level Business courses and five upper-level Business courses (numbered 300 and above).

Note: Depending on the courses selected, some additional prerequisite courses may be required.
Note*: Students should consult the Business Administration department and course prerequisite information in the calendar, as additional courses outside of the minor requirements may be needed for many upper-level electives, depending on the minor and courses selected.
