Business Minor

This minor is open to all undergraduates except Accounting and Business Economics majors. The Business minor provides students with a solid foundation in the functional disciplines of economics and business. The capstone course applies that foundation knowledge to business problems and gives students the opportunity to do a project that is relevant to their major. Students planning to complete the requirements for this minor must make arrangements with the Management, Marketing and Information Systems department, 324 Netzer, 607-436-3151.

  • All courses must be taken for a letter grade unless offered Pass/Fail only
  • One-half (1/2) of the minor coursework must be completed in residence
  • No more than two courses may overlap between/among all majors/minors; any excess requires additional coursework

  4. Students planning to complete any minor(s) should declare their intentions at an early point to facilitate advisement. Students must begin the Business minor in the first semester of junior year in order to complete it. Students should seek the assistance of an advisor in the Division. Some majors require additional courses in Economics & Business than those listed above. According to College policy, students who are not Accounting or Business Economics majors cannot take more than 30 s.h. in this Division; therefore those seeking the Business minor should carefully plan their course selections for their major and this minor. Transfer students whose transfer courses accepted as equivalent to courses offered by this Division and Oneonta courses mandated as requirements in a major outside the Division may be ineligible for this minor because of the 30 s.h. rule. Students who have earned elective courses from this Division may be ineligible for this minor.
