Minor in Business

Maybe you’ve already settled into your major course of study but want to expand your skills. Maybe you love learning about financial management, microeconomics, and management theory. Whatever your goals and dreams, earning your minor in business from Indiana University Kokomo is an excellent way to help you stand out to future employers, and deepen your knowledge base about the global economy we live in. A minor in business allows you to enhance and develop critical thinking skills, learn to communicate your ideas both in writing and orally, and learn to analyze complex issues to arrive at unique solutions.

The School of Business provides the opportunity to earn a minor in Business. Students may obtain a minor in Business by successfully fulfilling the following requirements:

  • Required coursework in Economics:
    • Either - ECON E201* Introduction to Microeconomics and E202* Macroeconomics (6 cr.)
