Although many people don’t consider themselves to be businesspeople, every career involves business skills in some way. General business and concentrated minors provide an excellent complementary set of skills to enhance a student’s primary career goals and degree.
These skills include understanding business fundamentals, competition between firms, management of people and processes, financial accounting and financial statements, financial management and investing, international trade and cross-cultural awareness.

If you’re interested in becoming business savvy with a business minor while pursuing a non-business degree, we encourage you to speak with one of our advisors early in your college career to be better prepared to add this into your studies. Any of these minors’ pair well with another degree in business, communication, nursing or education.
