Business Minor has spots open for Spring

Each semester, the business minor accepts 150 students. This fall there were approximately 100 students on the waitlist and they have now rolled over to start this spring.

This means that there are only  a few spots for new students interested in starting in Spring 2015. Interested juniors should apply to the business minor as soon as possible. It does take a minimum of three semesters (with no summer options), so juniors would need to start now in order to be able to finish ‘on time’. They will prioritize the waitlist to accommodate those students as well.

The online application is located here. We take applications on a rolling, space available basis and do accept students who are in-progress with the prerequisite (cal or stats w/ C-).
