Business Administration Minor


In response to the demand for career-oriented degree programs, the John Cook School of Business, in cooperation with other University departments, developed the minor in Business Administration.

Business as a supplement 

Students in some traditional degree programs outside the Cook School can complete 30 hours of specified business coursework for this minor.

If a degree program or health management major requires at least 50% of a minor’s courses then the minor cannot be awarded. For example, Aviation Management majors may not earn a minor in Business Administration, because the major requires more than 50% of the minor courses. Students are responsible for completing any prerequisites as required and a minimum of 2.0 cumulative GPA is required in minor coursework.


Business Administration Minor

Thirty (30) hours of business related coursework from the Cook School must be completed for the business administration minor.
