This minor is intended to give non-business majors a basic foundation in business skills. Employees for any organization, and especially those who work for themselves, need a general understanding of accounting, business information systems, business law, economics, management, marketing and finance. This minor is not available to any student with a major in business.

  • A minor is earned in conjunction with a bachelor's degree.
