As a Business Minor, courses are completed that examine the many facts of business, including accounting, finance, marketing, management, information systems, and economics, developing business knowledge and skills that assist anyone working in today's marketplace.

The courses in the program are offered in both online and in-person formats. Most students spread out the 29-credit Business Minor coursework over their academic career.
