Minor in Business

The business minor has the same rigor and content as the fundamental courses taken by business students. It provides flexibility in undergraduate studies and better prepares students for jobs and for graduate school. The business minor includes courses that are highly complementary. For most students, the requirements for the business minor are far more valuable than a similar number of courses in one or two areas.

Students can use only 3 transfer credit hours (or one course) to fulfill business minor requirements. This includes AP/IB credit or transfer credit taken at another institution. If you have transfer credits you are using to fulfill a minor requirement, please email mubusbusinessminor@missouri.edu to have this added to your minor degree audit.


15 of the 18 hours must be taken in residence. A cumulative 2.0 GPA in all business courses and those required for the business minor is required. See a business advisor for questions regarding the business minor.
