Business Minors

Business minors are available in the areas of business administration, digital marketing, finance, hospitality management, and management. All business minors are designed to meet the needs of students specializing in the sciences or the arts whose career opportunities may lead to positions in business or a related field. All minors are designed to provide a sound orientation in basic elements of the selected field.

Students majoring in a business concentration may take one additional major, rather than pursuing a minor. In case of a double major, only one course can serve as meeting the retirements of both majors. The number of business majors BBA students may declare is limited to two.
