Important Polices

Whether you are a business school or non-business school major, the process for declaring a minor is the same. Students majoring in one of the five majors offered by the School of Business may choose to minor in business analytics, international business, or entrepreneurship. Students with a major outside of the School of Business may choose to minor in business or entrepreneurship.​

Business School Majors Interested in a Minor

  1. Students must have completed 30 credits (sophomore standing) to declare the Minor in International Business or the Entrepreneurship Minor and take the minor courses. Students must achieve a grade of C or higher in all courses applied to the minor.
  2. At least 8 credits of coursework for either minor must be unique for that Minor and not used to fulfill other major, concentration or minor requirements.

Non-Business School Majors Interested in a Minor

  1. Students must have completed 30 credits (sophomore standing) to declare the Business Minor or the Entrepreneurship Practice Minor and take the minor courses. Students must achieve a grade of C or higher in all courses applied to the minor.
  2. At least 8 credits of coursework for either minor must be unique for that minor and not used to fulfill other major, concentration or minor requirements.
  3. Students who have already taken and received credit for relevant School of Business business foundation or core course(s) shall substitute courses as follows and cannot receive credit for the equivalent MBUS course:
    • ACCT 203 for MBUS 300
    • FNAN 301 or FNAN 303 for MBUS 308
    • MGMT 301 or MGMT 313 for MBUS 301

  4. Students who have taken and received credit for both ACCT 203 and FNAN 301/303 can substitute the combination for MBUS 300, and cannot receive credit for MBUS 300.
  5. Transfer students may transfer a maximum of six credits toward the business minor.
  6. MBUS courses may not be used as substitutions for prerequisites needed for upper-level School of Business courses (e.g., MBUS 301 cannot serve as a substitution for MGMT 301/303, which is a prerequisite for upper-level MGMT courses).
