Minors in the School of Business Administration

All minors are open to all undergraduate students, including students outside the School of Business Administration degree programs. Courses taken in the minor may not be counted toward the major but may be used to satisfy courses taken in preparation for a major and core curriculum requirements. For example, students who are majoring in business administration and minoring in accounting will likely have already completed ACCT 201, ACCT 202, and ITMG 100 in preparation of their Business Administration major. These students will only need to complete ACCT 300, ACCT 302, and one additional upper-division accounting elective to complete the requirements noted above and receive the minor. However, upper-division accounting courses taken for the Accountancy minor cannot be counted as part of the upper-division elective units in the business administration major. Please check with an advisor about prerequisite courses that are required prior to taking a course listed in one of the minors.
