The McLaren School of Management offers Minors in General Business (20 credits), Entrepreneurship and Innovation (20 credits), and Hospitality Management (20 credits), for students declaring majors other than business.
The General Business Minor provides the non-business major with a background in business to complement their current field and future careers. The Entrepreneurship and Innovation (E&I) Minor helps students develop their analytical skills and experiences needed to create innovative products and entrepreneurial ventures. The Hospitality Management Minor offers an intensified concentration in business and hospitality management classes in order to provide a basic foundation and knowledge of the industry, thus enhancing a student's competitive "positioning" in this field.
The Minors are reflected on students' transcripts, and require a letter grade and a minimum GPA of "C" (2.0) in the Minor. Students interested in a Business Minor should consult with their advisor to declare the Minor and to review the specific course requirements and necessary prerequisites for the courses.
