Summer Business Minor

This summer, do something major.
Earn a Summer Business Minor.

The number of students pursuing a Business Minor at the University of Nevada, Reno has been climbing rapidly in recent years, and for good reason. Students can major in their principal academic interest while also gaining real business knowledge that makes them more attractive to employers or more successful in managing their own business. Students in many majors, such as engineering, agriculture, microbiology, and the sciences, find that a business minor can help inform and improve their decisions.

The Minor in Business Administration requires 24 credits in eight 3-credit courses:

  Class Title
1. ACC 201 Financial Accounting
2. ACC 202 Managerial Accounting
3. IS 101 Introduction to Information Systems
4. ECON 100
OR
ECON 102
Introduction to Economics

Principles of Microeconomics
5. MKT 210 Marketing Principles
6. BUS 300 Introduction to Finance
7. IS 301 Management Information Systems
8. MGT 323 Organization and Interpersonal Behavior

Except for ECON 100, all of these courses are regularly taught during the summer.

Is it possible to complete the minor in a single summer?

ECON 102 is a CO6 social science course already required by many majors, and students with computer software skills can usually pass a challenge exam to get credit for IS 101. Once you have completed ECON 102 and IS 101 (or the challenge exam), that leaves six more courses, which can be conveniently taken in the following sequence over the summer:
