Business Administration Minor
The Business Administration Minor is designed for students who have a major in a college other than business at the University of Northern Colorado. This minor provides a broad exposure to the functional areas in business, including accounting, computer information systems, finance, management, and marketing.
The minor can provide you with the basic business knowledge you need to succeed in almost any area of study, from artists who dream of owning a studio, social workers who hope to manage a department or non profit organization, or any professional who will be responsible for managing budgets and wants to position themselves for future success. Upon completion, you’ll understand:
- How to build a budget and determine the future value of money and assets.
- Basic concepts about marketing, and how it is applied in both
business and non-business organizations.
- How to manage information systems, including software,
hardware, networking, internet and e-commerce.
- Accounting as the language of business, including financial
statement and cost information development, and the analysis of decision making.
- Organizational behavior and human resources issues.
