Business Minor and Concentration

The Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business offers a minor in business and a concentration in accounting.

Minor in Business for Non-Business Majors

These courses survey the traditional functional areas of the business enterprise and prepare students to interact effectively with professionals from those areas.
