Business Administration, Minor
Explore management practices. Create a marketing plan. Pursue your interests. Join your passion with business skills. No matter the area of study, an interactive knowledge of business will enhance your future success.
This minor is intended to give students majoring in other disciplines an understanding of the primary functions within a business. Students enrolling in the minor are expected to be computer literate (CS115 or BA131) and to have completed an introductory statistics course. A minimum 2.5 GPA in SOU business administration courses is required.
The minor provides students with basic business knowledge so they can understand the big picture in an organization and their role in it. Students are required to complete courses in accounting, marketing and management. With two elective courses, students can explore other areas of business that fit with their career goals.
Many students are delighted to find that a business minor complements their major (in which their capstone is completed). No matter what major they choose, a student is likely to end up in a position in which business skills are required. A business minor can enhance a student’s resume by adding tangible business skills making them more competitive on the job market.
