Minor in Business Administration

The Minor in Business is a program of study serving two groups of students in non-business majors. The first group are those who wish to reinforce their employment credentials by taking several business courses.  A Minor in Business provides students with a strong and credible program.  Many large corporations recognize the importance of a strong background in the liberal arts and sciences.  In addition, these corporations look for entry level business skills.  The Minor in Business provides these skills.

The second group of students are those who plan to do graduate work in Business. Many students find they can enhance their promotion opportunities with an advanced degree in Business.  Some students choose the Minor in Business realizing that the minor contains courses which many colleges require for their MBA programs.
