The 12-credit hour Business Minor Concentration is designed for students who want to excel in the real-world business environment. This minor includes core classes in Marketing, Management, Accounting and Finance, followed by a choice of emphasis and concludes with a capstone business plan development project. For the e+ Business Minor Concentration, students can only choose between three different emphasis track options: Innovation & Entrepreneurship, Analytics or Business Leadership 

Engineering Students who want to pursue the Business Minor concentration must apply for admission through the Leeds Business Minor. Engineering Plus students receive priority admission but must still meet all eligibility requirements found on website. Business Minor students have access to many Leeds School of Business resources, including ongoing professional development events and its extensive professional network. The Fall admission deadline is October 5th, the Spring deadline is March 5th, and the Summer deadline is February 5th (priority admission) and April 5th (standard admission).
