Minor in Business Administration
A minor in Business Administration is one of two business minors available at UVM (the other minor is Accounting). For either minor, students need to submit an application and successfully complete the prerequisite courses. Complete the minor application for non-business majors.
To be awarded a Minor in Business Administration, a student must earn at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA in the Business minor courses. The minor GPA consists of accounting course(s) and four upper-level business courses.
The four prerequisite courses must be completed with a GPA of at least a 2.0 before you can be admitted to the Minor in Business Administration:
- ECON 11 - Macroeconomics
- ECON 12 - Microeconomics
- MATH 19 or 21 - Calculus
- STAT 141 or (STAT 111 and STAT 211) - Statistics*
*For students whose majors require a Statistics course, the following courses are approved as substitutes for STAT 141: EC 170, NR 140, PSYC 109 and 110, STAT 143
