A new academic minor in business will be the University of Georgia’s first high-demand minor when it becomes an undergraduate option in the spring 2020 semester.

Administered by the Terry College of Business, the new minor will provide a solid foundation in the business fundamentals through 15 credit hours of coursework in economics, accounting, finance, marketing and management.

“Many students will be faced with the need to understand the fundamentals of business as they excel in their chosen professions,” said Terry College Dean Benjamin C. Ayers.“This minor will help students understand these fundamentals and enhance their career paths.”

The minor is open to all undergraduate non-business majors at the university, but as a high-demand minor, students will be competitively selected for admission each semester. Students may apply beginning October 7, 2019, for spring semester acceptance. Academic requirements for the business minor can be completed within one year of acceptance into the minor.
