Business Minor

Stand out with a business minor.

Are you a sports management major who needs to speak the language of business at the bargaining table? Or are you an English literature major seeking business skills to start your own company?

Regardless of your major, a business minor gives you a broad understanding of business concepts, including finance, management, and marketing—all while sharpening your skills, knowledge, and value. If you are an IU Indianapolis student pursuing a non-business bachelor's degree, the business minor could be a good option for you.

Business skills are life skills, and understanding how smart businesses work is essential in any field.

To qualify for the business minor, you must be an admitted or current student at IU Indianapolis.

You must:

  • Be pursuing a non-business bachelor's degree.
  • Complete 21 credit hours (seven courses) in business.
  • Earn a minimum GPA of 2.0 in those courses. (A minimum grade of C is required in The Computer in Business course.)
  • Take four of the seven courses at IU Indianapolis.
  • Complete course requirements for the business minor, which are identified below.
