Business Minor

The College of Business Administration offers a minor for students from other colleges. The minor is designed to provide a background in business administration that will complement the major area of study. Interested students should contact an adviser in the College of Business Administration for details.

The general business minor is designed specifically for non-business students and should not be confused with the individual minors offered for College of Business Administration students by the college departments. Contact your adviser for additional details about the program.
