Undergraduate degree programs



Fuse academic disciplines to maximize the value of your degree. Students from other ASU colleges are welcome to add depth with a minor on business, designed as a complement for the non-business degree. You’ll build a strong foundation in important managerial topics, such as accounting, computer information systems, economics, finance, management, marketing, and supply chain management.

Career opportunities

No matter what your major is, knowledge of business fundamentals is essential to long-term career success. The W. P. Carey minor in business will help you stand out from individuals who share your major, but lack business training — giving you a competitive edge in your job search, the right skills and knowledge to quickly move up from entry level to management, and the ability to shape a dynamic future in your career of choice. It’s an exceptional way to diversify your college experience, while adding lifelong value to your degree.

How to enroll

The business minor is open to non-business undergraduate students at Arizona State University. It is available as either an on-campus or 100% online program. Business students are not eligible to apply for this minor. Completion of the business minor requires 18 credit hours of the specified business courses with a grade of "C" or better in each course. Six of the 12 upper-division credit hours required must be resident credit. The upper-division courses specified for the minor will be restricted to students with 56 earned credit hours, a minimum 2.0 ASU cumulative GPA, and completion of course prerequisites.
