Business Administration Minor

The business administration minor will allow students to graduate with solid knowledge of business concepts. This minor is a perfect option to pair with several majors, making students more marketable and flexible, as there is a business component in all jobs and industries. 

Admission to the minor is required.


In addition to the program requirements listed below, students must:

  • take at least nine hours of their minor "core" requirements at UNC–Chapel Hill
  • earn a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.000 in the minor core requirements. Some programs may require higher standards for minor or specific courses.

For more information, please consult the degree requirements section of the catalog.

All business minor courses must be completed at UNC Kenan-Flagler, except for courses taken while studying abroad through a Kenan-Flagler Program.

Students must successfully complete four specific business core courses and a minimum of two business elective courses (4.5 credit hours) for a total of 15 credit hours. The program can be completed within two to three semesters.

Once admitted as business minors, students will be able to register themselves in the core courses (BUSI 403, BUSI 406, BUSI 408, and BUSI 411) through Connect Carolina. Business minors may take a maximum of six business electives courses (regardless of credit hours) during their academic career.
