Eligibility

  • Only one business-related minor is allowed.  Students electing the Undergraduate Business Minor may not also fulfill minors in Human and Organizational Development (HOD), Engineering Management (ENGM), or Managerial Studies minors in Corporate Strategy (MGCS) and Financial Economics (FNEC).
  • Students in the class of 2019 may declare the MGCS and/or FNEC minors, or the BUS minor. If they declare the Undergraduate Business Minor, they may not also declare the MGCS or FNEC minors.
  • Students in the class of 2020 and subsequent classes (2021 and thereafter) may only declare the Undergraduate Business minor.
  • The Undergraduate Business Minor carries a 2.0 minimum GPA requirement.
  • Pass/Fail credit may not be used to satisfy Fundamentals and Electives requirements.
  • Students may take one Fundamentals course per mod period (half-semester).
  • Students may NOT count MGRL 1100 (Fundamentals of Management) toward the minor.  The course will count toward graduation hours only.
  • Students looking to satisfy the accounting, finance, marketing, and organizational behavior Fundamentals course requirements after AY 2017/2018 must complete BUS 2100 (Essentials of Financial Reporting), BUS 2300 (Principles of Finance), BUS 2600 (Principles of Marketing), and BUS 2400 (Organizational Behavior).
  • Students may substitute HOD 2100 for BUS 2400 for credit toward the  minor. Students enrolled in or having completed HOD 2100 will be blocked from registering for BUS 2400.
  • Pre-matriculation Transfer Credit may be awarded at the discretion of the Director of the Undergraduate Business Minor. Such credit will allow a student to substitute introductory financial reporting, marketing, finance, organizational behavior, or operations courses for the duplicate BUS course and block registration of the duplicate BUS course. If credit is given for a BUS course, enrollment in the BUS course for which credit has been granted will be blocked. Equivalency credit for each respective BUS Fundamentals course may not exceed 1.5 hours. For example, a course in Principles of Marketing may be awarded 3.0 equivalent credit hours, of which 1.5 hours may count toward the Fundamentals marketing course. The remaining 1.5 hours will count toward graduation, but not toward the fulfillment of other Undergraduate Business Minor requirements, including elective hours. Credit will be applied even if the student has not declared the Undergraduate Business Minor.

  • Post-matriculation and study abroad credit shall not be awarded for non-equivalent Business in Society elective credit.
  • Post-matriculation and study abroad credit may be awarded for equivalent Business Pathways credit.
