Business - Minor
Mays Business School offers a business minor for undergraduate non-business majors. Students interested in pursuing a future MBA may find that when combined with appropriate statistics and economics coursework, the business minor provides the business foundation required by most MBA programs.
Students applying for a business minor must have a 2.0 or better overall GPA. Application is made in the student’s home college or major department. Students are encouraged to start taking business minor courses as soon as the minor is declared.
To be awarded the business minor and receive transcript recognition, students must obtain a grade of C or better in each required course. Once declared, minor requirements become graduation requirements. The minor will be recognized on the transcript after graduation, but not on the diploma.
The minor in business consists of six specific courses chosen to develop a foundational knowledge in the basic aspects of business, including accounting, finance, management, marketing, and management information systems.
