Minor in Business for Non-Business Majors
Please refer to the Business Minor website for important changes to the application process and requirements.
The Business Minor is designed for students earning Undergraduate degrees in colleges other than the Gies College of Business. The Business Minor provides a fundamental academic preparation for Non-Business students who wish to pursue a business career. The Business Minor provides coursework through which Non-Business students learn skills used in business. Business Minor students will learn the theories, techniques and concepts of Accountancy, Finance, Management and Marketing. The Business Minor is not available to Gies College of Business students and Technology and Management Minor students. The Business Minor is not to be considered as preparation for transfer into the Gies College of Business to earn an Undergraduate Business degree.
To declare their Minors, Non-Business students must submit their Statement of Intent to Pursue a Campus-Approved Minor (Statements) to 1055 Business Instructional Facility (BIF) at any time.
Statements submitted prior to January 28, 2019, will be collected and held until that time, as open Business Minor course enrollments will begin in the 2019 Fall Semester Registration Period. Prospective Business Minor students will not be permitted to enroll in the 2019 Spring Semester and 2019 Summer Session Business Minor Core and Elective courses.
