The business minor provides an introduction to the skills needed for success in the rapidly changing and evolving world of business. Because it is designed for non-business students who seek to learn business essentials to enhance their own area of expertise, the minor provides broad exposure to business concepts and theories. The minor also presents and integrates the major functional areas in business to solve management problems through the use of IT. Strong written and oral communication skills are expected.
For policies governing all minors, see AP.5.3.4 Minors. The School of Business residency requirement for this minor supersedes the university requirement: at least nine credits must be earned at Mason.
At least eight credits of the minor courses must be unique to the Business Minor and not applied toward any other major, minor, or concentration. Students must achieve a grade of C or better in each course that is applied toward the minor.
