Students majoring in business at UT can complement their BBA or BSIT degree by completing a minor in a field other than their major field of study.

Please check with the Office of Student Retention and Academic Success for the most current requirements for the minors. All students must make formal application to declare their Business minor.


As part of the 10 course required in the area of specialization requirement in the BBA degree, students complete 3 junior/senior level Business electives or a 3 courses toward an approved Business minor in addition to the 7 courses required in their major. A second Business minor may be completed with 9 additional hours.

The following minors are ONLY available for College of Business and Innovation students. The only exception to this is for engineering students in the BS Information Technology major.
