Managers are needed in every organization and in every profession.
By gaining an understanding of the basic functional areas of management, you'll have a competitive advantage in the marketplace and throughout your career.
The minor in management, an eight-course curriculum drawn from the core courses of School of Management's existing undergraduate majors, is available to undergraduate students from any major. It provides a foundation in the basic language and principles of business and complements advanced study in engineering, social science, health-related professions and other undergraduate majors.
"Liberal-arts and social-science majors are missing out on something vital to their futures: Business 101."
—The Chronicle of Higher Education
Applicants to the management minor program must be matriculating
UB students in good academic standing who have completed at least
60 credit hours and the minor prerequisite courses with a minimum
overall GPA, UB GPA and prerequisite GPA of 2.5. All prerequisite
courses should be completed or in progress when applying for the
minor. School of Management majors may not participate in the minor
Meeting the minimum application requirements does not guarantee admission. The program is competitive and will admit the top 75 fall applicants and the top 75 spring applicants each year. Upper-division management courses are taken during the junior and/or senior years, after acceptance into the minor program. The program will try to accommodate individual preferences for which three of the six elective courses each student participates in, but exact preference cannot be guaranteed because of capacity constraints.
