Undergraduate Business Minors

Adding a minor will further prepare you for a career in today’s highly competitive world. It will help set you apart and provide you with a wider skill set when you enter the workforce.

All minors other than accounting and finance, require the completion of 15 credits in the respective business discipline. To have the selected minor recorded on the transcript, students must earn a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better in the minor.
