Management Minor

Students who have a major other than management are eligible to complete a minor in management within the College of Management. There are many majors in the College of Liberal Arts, College of Science and Mathematics, or College of Nursing and Health Sciences, among others, that would be complemented by the management minor. Information technology majors within the College of Management are also eligible to complete a minor in management.
