Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

In order to be admitted to the minor, you must successfully complete the general education prerequisites for the program. The first prerequisite is completion of ECO 113 Principles of Economics , ECO 102 Principles of Microeconomics  or ECO 101 Principles of Macroeconomics  with a C or better. The second prerequisite is the completion of MAT 140A /MAT 140B  College Algebra or MAT 117  (taken at Shippensburg University) with a C or better or a higher level mathematics course or a math placement level of 5 or higher.

The business minor consists of four required core business courses and two business elective courses. The four required courses provide you with a solid fundamental background in business. In addition, these foundation courses will apply directly toward meeting some of the requirements of most MBA programs if you decide to pursue a master’s degree in business later. The two elective courses in business allow you to tailor the minor to complement your major and to develop an area of specialization to further enhance future employment opportunities.

Numerous studies have shown a high percentage of students, regardless of major, end up pursuing careers in business or careers that require an understanding of business. No matter what career path you take after graduation, whether self-employed or working for an organization, the business concepts and skills you gain from the business minor will help to expand your opportunities and ensure your success.

Interested students are encouraged to check out the John L. Grove College of Business website at www.ship.edu/business for more information on the business minor. To apply for the business minor, students should stop by Grove Hall 128 to complete an application.
