The Minor in Business Administration is designed for non-College of Business students whose objective is to acquire an understanding of business essentials to supplement their own areas of expertise. By selecting a Minor in Business Administration, a non-business major can open both educational and career opportunities in business as a secondary area of study. For the non-business student who is planning on entering a Master’s of Business Administration program, the completion of this minor would satisfy part of the foundation requirements of the UMass Dartmouth MBA program, as well as MBA programs offered at many other institutions.
Non-business students eligible to declare the minor must have an overall GPA of 2.5 and have completed 54 credits. The Request for a Minor form must be completed and submitted to the Registrar. Students meet the requirements of the minor by completing all of the 7 courses listed below with a minimum GPA of 2.5 in the seven courses.
A minor must be completed at the time of the degree and will be so noted on the student’s transcript. A student cannot be readmitted to the University to complete only a minor.
