Minor in Business: Management Pre-MBA

Return to Academic Programs Return to: Academic Programs

This minor is intended for non-BSBA (Bachelor of Science in Business Administration) students only.  The Masters of Business Administration (MBA)degree is a highly sought after degree for students in many different majors that wish to pursue careers in business, the non-profit sector, and the public sector.  the MBA degree offered by most institutions is a two year to two and one half year program.  The BSBA core course requirements are usually credited toward the first year of an MBA program.  The intent here is to offer a pre-MBA minor that will allow non- business students to prepare for the MBA program without changing their major to business administration.  Given the number of students in other majors that minor in business and the number of students that reluctantly switch their major to business this minor will provide an excellent career option.

The proposed Business: Management Pre-MBA minor will be for non-BSBA students only.  The minor will be 24 credit hours and require a GPA in the minor courses of 2.75 or above for successful completion.  ACBSP, our business accreditation body mandates that the following common Professional Component (CPC) requirements be met for the accreditation of an MBA program.  The School of Business has used these CPCs as a guide to the development of this minor:

  • Marketing

  • Accounting
  • Management
  • Legal Environment of Business
  • Economics
  • Business Ethics
  • Global Dimensions of Business
