Business Administration Minor

The Business Administration minor is a structured minor that requires the completion of 18 units, 9 of which must be for upper division credit. Professional Admission to the Eller College is not required for the BNAD courses; there are no prerequisites at the upper division other than the completion of ECON 200 prior to attending BNAD 301. However, it is suggested that all the lower division courses be completed prior to the upper division courses.
