Required Courses (6 Hours)

  • MKTG 350  - Principles of Marketing
  • ECON 301 - Money and Banking
  • ECON 311 - Issues in Economics

***It is recommended that ECON 224 and ACCT 222 be completed before taking 300 level BA/ECON courses.


Beginning in Fall 2014, the minor requirements have changed. Students from earlier bulletins can opt into this curriculum through coordination with their academic advisor in their home college.

Required Courses (12 hours)

  • ACCT 222- Introduction to Accounting
  • ECON 224- Introduction to Economics
  • MGMT 371- Principles of Management
  • MKTG 350- Principles of Marketing
Electives (6 hours) Complete two courses from the following
  • ACCT 324- Survey of Commercial Law
  • ECON 311- Issues in Economics
  • ECON 379- Government Policy Toward Business
  • FINA 369- Personal Finance
  • IBUS 301- Introduction to International Business
  • MGMT 472- Entrepreneurship and Small Business
  • MGSC 395- Operations Management
  • MKTG 351- Consumer Behavior
***Note: When a student's major requires one of the 300 or 400 level courses included in the Business Administration minor, that course cannot be used to fulfill both the requirements for the major and the requirements for the minor. Where such overlap exists between the requirements of the major and the minor; the student will need to take additional courses from the elective coursework listed above to fulfill the 18 hours required by the minor.
