Requirements for the Minor in Business

The business minor program complements nonbusiness majors by providing a general overview of accounting, information systems, finance, management and leadership, marketing, and supply chain.

The minor requires completion of 18 hours (6 courses) with a cumulative grade-point average of 2.0 or higher in these courses. All business minor courses must be taken for a grade; credit/no credit is not permitted.

Students must declare the business minor by completing the declaration of minor form and are strongly encouraged to do so as early as possible.
