Department of Management, Gordon S. Lang School of Business and Economics
The study of business is complementary to virtually any career or professional endeavour. The minor in Business is intended to enhance the business literacy of non-business students. Through a combination of core and elective courses, students from different disciplines will develop foundational knowledge and understanding of the core functional areas of business, and be invited to explore and apply this in relation to their primary area of study.
Note: The minor in Business is not open to students enrolled in the Bachelor of Commerce program.
