Minor in Business

Starting Fall 2013, a unique, 12 hour minor was created for non-business majors so that they can effectively perform in an emerging global business environment. Through integrated modular coursework, students are introduced to the essential elements of Marketing, Management, Accounting, Finance, and Corporate Social Responsibility.

Once completed, students then choose between one of three business track options: Innovation, Analytics or Entrepreneurship. Students have the option of completing multiple tracks for increase breadth of application.

Finally, students complete their minor requirements through a business Capstone course that focuses on strategy, application, and the development of a business plan.

Note: Courses are available in Fall and Spring only and due to program cost, there is a $500 per course fee. Scholarships are available. Please view the details via the menu on the left.
