Beginning in Fall 2013, a Minor in Business will be offered by the Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan. The Minor in Business is designed for students who would like to complement their non-business undergraduate major with business knowledge and will add value to many technical and non-technical majors across campus. The minor curriculum provides a broad introduction to fundamental business concepts through a cohesive set of courses. The curriculum will enable non-business students to integrate business concepts, skills, and perspectives into their declared majors while applying and building upon the analytical, quantitative, and leadership skills they have already developed.
