Students Intending to Minor in a Business Discipline
If you are not a business or engineering major, a minor can look great on your resume and can put you ahead of competitors in some instances. If this is your goal in choosing a minor, choose wisely. A minor can be a great asset if you decide on one that clearly portrays your interest in a particular field. It can place you in a specific niche that could help you stand out. It's not a good idea to rely on your minor to get a better job. You should choose a minor for personal reasons, or possible targeting a particular position in meeting the requirement.
A student majoring in another field outside the College of Business and Engineering may elect to minor in Business, Accountancy, Finance, Management, or Marketing by completing 18-21 credit hours in the designated minor. Each minor includes at least nine hours of upper division business courses. Students pursuing a minor in a business field may take upper division business courses beyond the list of open business classes below upon completion of 54 credit hours in their major degree plan including ENGL 1301 and ENGL 1302 and speech, a mathematics sequence and computer literacy as required in their major as well as any specific course prerequisites.
Upper division business courses are restricted to business majors, business minors, and students who meet the entrance requirements for being a business major or business minor. Non-business majors may take no more than 25% of their undergraduate program in business.
