Economics majors pursuing a Business minor must take at least 6 additional credit hours of approved upper division business electives due to overlapping courses between their major and a Business minor. 

Business minors seeking preparation for a MBA degree should choose a management elective (course prefix MNGT) to meet the criteria to waive ACCT 6301, ECON 6301 and MNGT 6360 in the UTPB MBA program, reducing the MBA program requirements from 48 to 39 credit hours. The Graduate Catalog or Coordinator of Graduate Business Studies should be consulted for additional information about preparation for the MBA degree. 

Students who are seeking a teaching field in Business Administration must choose both MNGT 3324 and three FINA 3320 or ECON 3322 and must complete MNGT 2301 and COSC 1335 (BCIS 1305 or 1405).
