Students in non-business majors (including B.A. Economics) can elect to complete a business minor in order to develop business acumen. Students interested in adding a minor in business to their academic programs are encouraged to contact a faculty advisor in business to discuss how the minor can assist them in achieving their career goals.

The minor in business is designed to:
