Business minor

The Business minor is available to students in degree programs other than the Bachelor of Business Administration. Students should check with their department and/or the calendar to determine whether the minor is applicable to their degree.

Requirements and procedures

Once enrolled in a major program of study in a degree program which permits a Business minor, students can contact the School of Business to declare a Business minor and to discuss developing a program plan of study with a School of Business program advisor.

Entrance requirements

  • Completion of a minimum of 30 credits including BUS 100 and 6 additional credits of Business or Economics.
  • Minimum CGPA of 2.00.
  • C+ or better in one of Principles of Mathematics 12 of Pre-calculus 12 (see Note).

Note: Mathematics requirement can also be satisfied by a C+ or better in one of MATH 096 or MATH 110, a C+ or better in both MATH 094 and MATH 095 (discontinued), a C or better in one of MATH 092 or MATH 140, or a score of 17/25 or better on Part B of the MSAT together with a score of 34/50 or better on Parts A and B combined.

Program duration
