Program Description

In today’s fast-paced world, an understanding of business theory, practices, and applications is an important skill for students to carry with them after graduating college. The University of Utah's Business minor is designed for students majoring in academic areas outside of the business school who wish to supplement their major studies with education in business topics. The curriculum includes six pre-business courses and four higher-level business courses, covering subjects such as accounting, business thought, economics, finance, information systems, management, marketing, math, and statistics. Business skills are in demand not only in the corporate sector, but also in public and non-profit areas, so consider adding a business minor to your degree plan!

Academic and Career Opportunities

In addition to academics, Business minor students can network and gain additional business skills by joining an area-specific student organization, such as the Entrepreneur Club, Outdoor Industry Club or Sales Club.  Students who complete the Business minor can apply the skills they learned to careers in business—such as management, financial analysis, or marketing research—or careers related to their major (for example, the student who majored in English and who is now starting a freelance editing company). Be sure to check out the Business Student Government's calendar page to learn about upcoming events.
