Business Minors Provide a Competitive Edge
Business minors can help convince recruiters that students have the necessary skills to succeed at companies.
The Undergraduate-New Brunswick program offers an Entrepreneurship Minor to non-RBS students. Courses have both RBS and non-RBS students in them. Such diversity allows for the generation of a variety of ideas and perspectives on problems (for example, having engineering, science, or art majors interact with RBS students). The suggested course track for this minor will be to first take the Preliminary Core Requirements designed to provide students with general business skills (9 credits), then take the Entrepreneurship Core courses (6 Credits) and finally select an elective (3 credits).
The Undergraduate-New Brunswick program also offers a Minor in Business Administration. The 18-credit minor consists of 6 three-credit introductory courses covering each of the disciplinary areas. This combination provides a substantial and comprehensive overview of the major aspects of business administration. Undergraduate degrees in the broad functional areas of business have been offered on the New Brunswick Campus since 1934.
