Minor in Business Management

Through core courses in management, accounting, finance and marketing, students gain a solid foundation in business management principles. The minor is perfect for those students who may someday wish to transition into a management position or even run their own company. The elective courses cover a wide range of topics, from leading project teams to supply chain management and real estate, so you can choose courses that interest you.
