This program is uniquely designed for non-business students so that they can effectively perform in a global business environment.
Through our first two modular courses (BUSM 2001, 2002), students are introduced to the essential elements of Marketing, Management, Accounting and Finance. Students then choose between one of four business track options: Innovation, Analytics, Entrepreneurship or Global Business (BUSM 3001, 3002, 3003, 3004). While not required, students may complete multiple tracks for increased breadth of application. Finally, students complete their minor with a capstone course that focuses on business strategy and development (BUSM 4001). Students participate in a business competition followed by a celebratory graduation where competition winners are recognized by Leeds and the local business community.
Business Minor courses are available during fall and spring semesters only, with the Global Business track being the exception. Our Global Business course occurs during Maymester and is available to a select few.
Professional development is an important aspect of the Business Minor experience. Our most recent events have included a Professional Development Conference, Career Panel Series, Excel Workshops, Networking Events and more. Graduates of the Business Minor will have gained both business acumen and professionalism.
