Minor in Business Administration
Engineering students may earn a Minor in Business Administration by earning a C or better in six business courses, plus at least one economics course. The economics requirement for the minor may be satisfied with MIME 2600 or with ECON 1150 and ECON 1200. The six business courses must include BUAD 2040, while the other five may be selected from the list in the College of Business and Innovation section. For students whose goal is to earn an M.B.A., the following six courses are recommended:
|BUAD 2040||Financial Accounting Information||3|
|BUAD 2050||Accounting For Business Decision-Making||3|
|BUAD 2070||Business Statistics and Analytics||3|
|BUAD 3010||Principles Of Marketing||3|
|BUAD 3020||Principles Of Manufacturing And Service Systems||3|
|BUAD 3040||Principles Of Financial Management||3|
Students not interested in an M.B.A. may wish to make substitutions in this list. For example, IBUS 3150 could be used in place of any of the above courses except BUAD 2040, to simultaneously satisfy part of the multicultural requirement in the University Core Curriculum. The flexibility of the requirements allows students to focus in areas such as marketing, sales, finance, management or entrepreneurship.
Students must be sophomores to take the 2000-level business courses and juniors to take the 3000-level courses. Also, BUAD 2040 must be taken before BUAD 3040, and the economics requirement must be satisfied before taking BUAD 3010. Otherwise, business prerequisites are waived for engineering students. Students should register with the College of Business and Innovation to become candidates for the business minor.
Students in the Mechanical Engineering program may use one of the business courses as a technical elective. Students in the Electrical Engineering program may use one of the business courses as a technical elective if they complete the business minor requirements. Students in the Civil Engineering program may use BUAD 2040 as a technical elective if they complete the business minor requirements. Students in the Chemical or Computer Science and Engineering programs may use business courses as free electives. Students in Engineering Technology programs may use one or more of the business courses as professional development electives.
Students interested in a business minor should consult advisors in the College of Business and Innovation and the College of Engineering.
