Minor in Business Administration

Students may seek either an academic major or minor in business administration.

The business administration minor complements the skills the student gains in his or her major discipline by providing a study of principles and techniques used in organizing, planning, managing, and leading within various organizations.

Requirements for the Minor

A minor in business administration requires the completion of 15 credits of coursework in business administration. Any ACCT, BMGT, FINC, HMGT, HRMN, and MRKT courses apply. It is recommended that students take BMGT 364 as the first course in the minor (if they have not already applied the course to other requirements).

Courses already applied toward other degree requirements (e.g., major or general education) may not be applied toward the minor. At least 9 credits must be earned in upper-level courses (numbered 300 or above). Prerequisites apply for all courses.
