Minor in Business

The McLaren School of Management offers a Minor in General Business for students declaring majors in disciplines 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 Minor is reflected on a students' transcript and requires a letter grade and a minimum GPA of "C" (2.0). Students interested in a Business Minor should consult with advisors in the McLaren School of Management to declare the Minor and to review the specific course requirements and necessary prerequisites for the courses.
