Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Areas of Study A-Z

Students who are majoring outside the School of Business Administration Business Programs may benefit from an opportunity to take a series of courses in business to enhance their academic programs. To provide this option, the School of Business Administration (SBA) has approved a series of structured minor programs that provide a sequence of courses that will enrich other disciplines, can be monitored by the administrative staff, and meet AACSB guidelines.

Students outside the School of Business Administration Business Programs may not take more than 24 credits in business (excluding EC 101 and EC 202, which count toward the general education requirement).

Students working toward a minor in business must take at least 15 credits from the School of Business Administration Business Programs (residency requirement).

The economics minor is designed for those non-business students who have an interest in economics, including the economic aspects of public policy issues. The electives chosen to fulfill the economics minor will broaden students’ knowledge of economic matters, as well as strengthen their analytical skills and powers of reasoning. This minor will also enhance student employment opportunities and professional development, including preparation for graduate school.


Total Credits: 15
