Management minors provide depth in a specific functional discipline (for example, entrepreneurship or emerging global markets) when taken with a Management major, or they serve as a complement to majors outside of the School of Management.  All minors consist of five courses. For those minors with electives, the electives should be chosen in consultation with the minor advisor.

With the exception of the minor in business, any minor may be taken by students majoring in one of the four management majors.  Majors in the management program may double count up to two courses for both their major and minor requirements.
