The McLaren School of Management offers four minors for students in non-business majors.
The minors are reflected on students’ transcripts, and require a letter grade and a minimum GPA of 2.0 in the minor. Students interested in a Business minor should consult with their adviser to declare the minor and to review the specific course requirements and necessary prerequisites for the courses.
The Business Analytics Minor develops the knowledge and skills in demand that are required for data-driven solutions to today’s business problems and decisions.
