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).
A minor in finance will give students the opportunity to understand the dynamic nature of financial management. Students will learn how a successful financial manager is involved in raising funds in the financial markets, making merger and acquisition decisions, new product introduction decisions, etc., all in an attempt to maximize shareholders’ wealth. Students will also get an overview of how finance relates to other areas of business.
