Adding a minor will further prepare you for a career in today’s highly competitive world. It will help set you apart and provide you with a wider skill set when you enter the workforce.

All minors other than accounting and finance, require the completion of 15 credits in the respective business discipline. To have the selected minor recorded on the transcript, students must earn a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better in the minor. Keep in mind that, in general, courses that count toward your declared major do not count towards the minor. The main exception to this rule applies to students in the Business Administration major, who can apply a maximum of two qualifying courses toward both their major and a minor; other exceptions are noted specifically in each minor.

All minors offered through the Silberman College of Business are listed below. Please note that due to pre-requisite courses, some, not all, minors are only open to students in the Silberman College of Business. Any student interested in pursuing a minor at Silberman College of Business should contact an advisor in the Silberman Academic Advising Office
