Business Administration

Non-Business students may broaden their education as well as expand their competitiveness in the job market with a minor in business. Students interested in pursuing a minor should consult with their major advisor to determine which one would best compliment their major.

Non-Business students should follow these steps:

  • Twelve (12) hours must be taken at MSU.
  • You must meet the required 2.50 MSU AND Overall GPA.
  • Only one D is accepted in the minor courses.
  • Follow the course requirements and pre-requisites. No course substitutions are allowed.
  • COB enforces pre-requisites due to its prestigious AACSB accreditation. Consider pre-requisites when choosing a minor course.
  • In order to ensure recognition for a minor, include the minor on the application for your degree. The minor and major must be declared simultaneously.
  • The minor will be recorded on the transcript, but does not appear on the diploma.
