Business Administration Minor

In conjunction with the Gabelli School of Business, students in Fordham College at Rose Hill (FCRH), Fordham College at Lincoln Center (FCLC) or Fordham School of Professional and Continuing Studies (PCS) may complete a minor in business administration. Students minoring in business administration as part of a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree must complete a minimum of 120 credits to earn their degrees (compared to 124 credits), since many courses for the minor bear three credits.

The business administration minor complements the liberal arts core by providing a clear, concise way of analyzing issues in economics and business. It can be helpful to students who plan to look for a job after graduation or to pursue the study of law or business.

The required business courses for the minor are offered regularly on both the Rose Hill and Lincoln Center campuses. Students who plan to minor in business administration may take Basic Macroeconomics and Basic Microeconomics to fulfill both the social science requirement and the business minor. With the permission of the adviser to the business minor, students who complete a course equivalent to ECON 2140 Statistics I in their major may substitute it for the statistics requirement. Economics majors may count Basic Macroeconomics, Basic Microeconomics, and Statistics I toward their major and the business minor.

The business administration minor consists of eight courses.
