Business Interdisciplinary Studies

Minor in Business Administration (BUS)

Interdisciplinary studies in business are represented by individual courses that are interdisciplinary, such as BIZ 101, BIZ 102, and BAI 103L, and by the interdisciplinary minor in Business Administration that is offered for students who are not in the School of Business Administration.

BIZ 101, BIZ 102, and BAI 103L are all required courses for first year students in the School of Business Administration and are part of the business core curriculum.

The minor in Business Administration is a valuable program for non-business majors who intend to pursue careers in business or want to prepare for an MBA program.
