The interdisciplinary business minor introduces students to a variety of fundamental business skills and knowledge.

Why pursue a minor in business?

All workplace environments, whether for-profit or nonprofit, are affected by economics, ethics, and public policy. Students of all majors may one day find themselves in management or leadership positions where they are responsible for budget, financial, marketing or personnel decisions. A business minor helps students to expand their knowledge of economics, finance, management and other areas of business administration that may benefit them no matter what their chosen career.
