Offered by the Fox School of Business and Management, the Minor in Business is designed for undergraduate degree-seeking students outside the Fox School of Business and Management. The minor provides non-business students with an overview of specific, critical business areas and is designed to enhance students' readiness for work in business or other organizations after graduation and increase their professional marketability. In addition, this quantitatively-oriented minor provides a good foundation for non-business students to facilitate the transition into an MBA program.

Students interested in a less quantitatively-oriented business minor may consider the General Business Studies minor.
