Business Minor

Students participating in a mock-interview class in the business program

The Business minor allows students to pursue their interests in the liberal arts and sciences while building a foundation of business skills and adding a valuable credential to their portfolio and resume. The minor in business requires successful completion of five business courses or 20 credit hours from the courses listed below.

The three required courses

  • BUS 400 - Introduction to Business
  • BUS 532 - Introduction to Financial Accounting
  • ECN 412 or 411 - Intro to Microeconomics or Macroeconomics

Two courses from the following list are required (at least one of which must be at the 600-level or above)

  • BUS 430 - Business Statistics
  • BUS 533 - Managerial Accounting
  • BUS 601 - Financial Management
  • BUS 610 - Marketing Principles
  • BUS 620 - Organizational Behavior
  • BUS 650 - Operations Management

Other 600- or 700-level courses in Business (BUS) or Economics (ECN) may be substituted for courses listed above with permission of the Business Program Coordinator. This may include an Internship course (UMST 500), Special Topics courses (BUS 675/685), or an Independent Study in Business (BUS 695).

Students must complete the five courses with a cumulative minimum grade point average of 2.0 in the five courses (20 credits), with no course below a C- grade. Transfer course approval for the minor would be limited to at most two relevant courses successfully completed at another accredited institution, subject to syllabi review and approval. Students must complete a minimum of 20 credits for the minor, with a maximum of eight credits transferred from accredited institutions and a minimum of 12 credits completed in residence at UNH.
