Minor in Business Management

The Minor in Business Management expands a student’s understanding of business and skills in management. The minor augments a student’s major and provides the background necessary for entrance into business related graduate programs.

At least 27 credits of “MS” course work are required for the minor. The Minor in Business Management requires taking courses above the minimum needed in a student’s major program. The advisor for the minor will establish a plan of study for each student. At least 50 percent of the minor requirements must be completed at MSOE.

Students in the BSBM, BSIB and BSMIS programs are not eligible to receive the Minor in Business Management.
