Get a taste of the language of business at a flagship technological university with a business minor. A minor allows you to specialize in a discipline outside of or complementary to your major. To pursue a minor, you must first be enrolled in a bachelor's degree program and submit a request to add a minor to your curriculum through the Curriculum Change Portlet in MyMichiganTech. The minor advisor will receive notification and contact you with any questions prior to reviewing and approving your request. We recommend that you begin your minor studies as early as possible in your academic career.
