Everyone needs a little business in their back pocket. The College of Business offers an innovative minor in Business Administration to students across campus. The minor in Business Administration is built in a modular format with two parts: a solid grounding in key foundational knowledge, and an optional component so students can strategically choose courses that combine with their primary major or career interests.  Students will develop competencies to understand the language and key concepts of business, and apply them in a wide variety of careers.  In addition to earning the minor, given the diversity of program options, students could also earn a certificate in Business-to-Business Selling, Entrepreneurship, or Music Business while completing the 21-credit minor requirements.

Effective Fall 2022

Students must satisfactorily complete the total credits required for the minor. Minors and interdisciplinary minors require 12 or more upper-division (300- to 400-level) credits.

Additional coursework may be required due to prerequisites.

Students must achieve a minimum GPA of 2.000 in courses used to satisfy the minor.
