Cox introduces new minor

The Cox School of Business introduced a new minor in business, the first minor to be offered from the school that does not require the student to be a member of the school of business. The minor will be initiated this upcoming summer. The new minor, available to all undergraduate students, is designed to provide non-business students with a solid foundation in business basics to complement whichever academic focus he or she may be studying.

The minor in business is an 18-hour program in which students take five courses at three credit hours each and three hours of elective credit. There are no GPA requirements to enroll in the new program. So far, the program is offered only in the summer, with the first slate of classes to be offered later this year.

Designed to take at least two years to complete, the program allows students to take as many as four classes per summer. If the student chooses to complete the program in only two years, the first four classes in the first year are taken on a full-time basis, with the last two classes in the second year leaving enough room in students’ schedules to take on a summer internship. Interested students are not required to follow this plan, and can take classes over several years.

The program, although open to non-business majors, is closed to Cox BBA majors and students pursuing the minor in business administration. These two programs, which share admission requirements, are still offered in the spring and fall semesters.
