Minor in Business Administration & Management

The minor in business administration is designed for the student who wants a general introduction to the concepts and functions of business. Courses in mathematics and computer science are recommended, but not required, for the minor.

The courses required for the minor are as follows:

  • CAS EC 101 Introductory Microeconomic Analysis (4 cr)
  • CAS EC 102 Introductory Macroeconomic Analysis (4 cr)
  • QST AC 221 Financial Accounting* (4 cr)
  • QST AC 222 Managerial Accounting (4 cr)
  • QST FE 101 Introduction to Finance** (2 cr)
  • QST OB 221 The Dynamics of Leading Organizations (4 cr)
  • QST QM 221 Probabilistic and Statistical Decision Making for Management (formerly QST SM 221) (4 cr)
  • QST SM 131 Business, Society & Ethics** (4 cr)

Students must receive a grade of C– or higher in each course taken toward the minor, including CAS EC 101 and EC 102. Students must take six courses in Questrom School of Business to fulfill the minor’s residency requirement. QST SM 299 counts as two of the six courses for students who took it.

Please note that students in the School of Hospitality Administration complete an alternative version of the minor in Business Administration & Management, consisting of the following required courses:

  • CAS EC 101 Introductory Microeconomic Analysis (4 cr)
  • CAS EC 102 Introductory Macroeconomic Analysis (4 cr)
  • QST FE 101 Introduction to Finance** (4 cr)
  • QST IM 345 International Business Environment
  • QST LA 360 Real Estate Law or QST OB 448 Negotiations
  • QST OB 221 The Dynamics of Leading Organizations (4 cr)
  • QST QM 221 Probabilistic and Statistical Decision Making for Management* (4 cr)
  • QST SM 131 Business, Society & Ethics** (4 cr)

 

The following courses may be substituted for QST QM 221:

  • CAS EC 203
  • CAS EC 303
  • CAS MA 115 & MA 116 (together)
  • CAS MA 213 & MA 214 (together)
  • CAS PS 211
  • ENG BE 200
  • ENG EC 381
  • ENG ME 366

(Students who use one of the above classes to replace QM 221 must take an additional class in Questrom to fulfill the minor. Options include QM 222, IM 345, 400-level OB courses, LA 245, and AC 347.)

**It is highly recommended that non-Questrom students take QST SM 131 and FE 101 concurrently. QST SM 131 is a prerequisite for all other Questrom courses in the minor. QST FE 101 is a prerequisite of QST OB 221, and QST AC 221 is a prerequisite for QST AC 222.
