Business Minor

Students in other majors at USC are able to complete an 18-hour business administration minor from the Darla Moore School of Business.

Business administration minor requirements for students entering in Fall 2014 or later

Required courses (15 hours)

Electives (three hours)
Complete one course from the following:


Notes:
* If ACCT 225 was taken prior to being a business minor, it may be used to satisfy the accounting requirement.

** If ECON 221 and ECON 222 were taken prior to being a business minor, they may be used to satisfy the economics requirement.

When a student’s major requires one of the 300 or 400 level courses included in the Business Administration minor, that course cannot be used to fulfill both the requirements for the major and the requirements for the minor. Where such overlap exists between the requirements of the major and the minor, the student will need to take additional selective coursework to fulfill the 18 hours required by the minor.

Prerequisites must be satisfied prior to enrolling in required and selective courses. Consult the Undergraduate Bulletin for list of prerequisites for minors.
