This Minor is designed to enhance employment opportunities for students who are not enrolled in programs in the Ted Rogers School of Management (TRSM) through the development of broad-based business knowledge and skills.

Specifically, it provides a fundamental understanding of the structure of business and the operation of the market-place both nationally and globally, an introduction to the terms, concepts, and nomenclature of business, basic knowledge about the functional areas of business (e.g. accounting, marketing) and how they are integrated for strategic decision-making, and an appreciation of the importance of finance and accounting in business success.

The Minor consists of three required courses that are integrated and team taught. Two of these required courses are foundational, and the third one is a final capstone course. In addition, students may choose up to three electives from eight offerings to deepen their understanding of business.
