No more than 6 of the 12 hours of business courses required for the minor may be counted toward the major requirements. The remaining hours may be counted toward the business electives requirement. For example, a student majoring in Finance may count FIN 340 and FIN 442 toward the required courses in Finance; other business courses from the above list are counted toward the student’s business electives.


ACTG 484 and FIN 442 have a prerequisite course that is not included in the Business Core.


Students should consult the General Education section of the catalog to determine which of these courses are approved General Education courses.

Students are encouraged to use their elective hours to take courses that would complement the required courses listed above, e.g., additional General Education courses in the field of international studies and courses in a foreign language. Depending on the major, completion of this minor may bring the total number of semester hours to over 120.
