Business Minor


Return to Programs of Study Return to: Programs of Study

The Business minor gives the non-business student a broad-based background in the field. Non-business students wishing to gain an understanding of commercial ventures or pursue a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree would be well served with this minor.

Students pursuing a Business minor must meet all prerequisites of courses included in the minor. See the course descriptions in the major area to ascertain the prerequisites for each course. At least 50% of upper level business credit hours in the minor must be taken at U.T. Permian Basin.

Economics majors pursuing a Business minor must take at least 6 additional credit hours of approved upper division business electives due to overlapping courses between their major and a Business minor (ECON 2301  & ECON 2302 ).

Business minors seeking preparation for a MBA degree should choose a management elective (course prefix MNGT) to meet the criteria to waive ACCT 6301, ECON 6301 and MNGT 6360 in the UTPB MBA program, reducing the MBA program requirements from 48 to 39 credit hours. The Graduate Catalog or Chair of Graduate Studies should be consulted for additional information about preparation for the MBA degree.

Students who are seeking a teaching field in Business Administration must choose MNGT 3324  and three hours from FINA 3320  or ECON 3322  and must complete MNGT 2342  and COSC 1335 . The Certification Officer should be consulted for additional information about preparation for teaching business administration.
