Business Minor

In addition to the Business Concentration and the MBA Pathway, yet another option for Honors College students interested in pursuing business is a Business Minor. As an Honors College student, regardless of your concentration, you have the option of earning a minor in Business Administration through the College of Business at Florida Atlantic University.

(Students also need to complete QMB 3600 Quantitative Methods of Business as a foundations course before starting the MBA program; note that this course has a prereq of STA 2023 and Calculus). Honors College students may find the following MBA programs of particular interest among other options available:
