Minors

Students majoring in General Business are required to select and complete a non-business minor to fulfill their degree requirements.

Students with a specialty major (all business majors except General Business) can also have an approved non-business minor. A number of minor fields of study are offered by other departments within the University and are available as options for business students. Requirements for minors vary among the departments that offer them, but they generally require a minimum of 18 hours of coursework. Six hours of the minor must be taken in residence at the University of Mississippi and students must have a 2.0 or higher GPA in the minor requirements.

Students pursuing a minor should carefully consider choosing non-business electives that apply toward the minor. In some cases, liberal arts courses that are a requirement in the business curriculum will count toward a minor field. Students should discuss their interest in earning a minor with their Business School advisor.

Business students may also pursue a minor in Entrepreneurship or Management Information Systems.

Entrepreneurship Minor

(for all Students)

A minor in Entrepreneurship is available to business and non-business students. The minor’s focus is on building an entrepreneurial mindset in our students with options to learn about issues related to family-led businesses, legal and human resources issues in small business, as well as financing and effective management of small and startup businesses. All students must meet the individual course prerequisites (please see requirements) before taking courses toward the Entrepreneurship minor.

For business students, earning the entrepreneurship minor requires declaring it to the Advising Office. Students outside the business school need to declare their intent to their major department (Entrepreneurship must be an approved minor for your department).

Students in General Business may choose to pursue the Entrepreneurship minor in addition to the required non-business minor; however, the requirements for the Entrepreneurship minor may not be used as major course requirements. Please see an Advisor if you have questions.

A minor in entrepreneurship consists of any six of the following courses: ACCY 201ACCY 202GB 350GB 370 OR MGMT 371BUS 380 (study abroad or Study USA trip approved by department), BUS 300 (internship related to entrepreneurship approved by department) and any 300-level or above ENT course.
