MINOR PROGRAMS

The minor programs are not requirements for any degrees or credentials but are available to provide two types of exposure to the field of business administration for the non-business major. The Minor in Business Administration is a general minor whose purpose is to introduce the student to the foundation areas of business. Specialized business minors allow the student to explore one area of business in more depth.

Except in cases of credit by examination, no more than six units of the business minor may be offered on a CR/NC basis. To meet residency requirements, at least fifty percent of any minor program must be taken in residence.

MINOR IN BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION

The Minor in Business Administration draws on business core courses to give a broad, non-specialized exposure to business. It is designed to provide entry-level employment skills for a wide range of jobs and help provide a bridge to the business world for non-business majors. It is also specifically designed to be an integral part of the Pre-MBA program offered by the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences for students wishing to combine an undergraduate liberal arts education and graduate study in business.

SPECIALIZED BUSINESS MINORS

These programs are designed to provide undergraduates with a focused exposure to a particular area of business practice rather than the broad exposure of the General Business Minor. As such, they can provide professional and technical skills needed for entry into specialized business employment for non-business majors or serve as an alternative to a double major for business majors wishing expertise in a second field.
