BS in Interdisciplinary Studies: Business Administration Minor


A minor in Business Administration can assist you to develop a unique skill set that’s desirable in the field, as well as other career areas.

The minor’s emphasis on relevant, applicable, and real world settings will offer you excellent opportunities to develop or enhance your knowledge base and skills in the field, as well as begin to prepare you for a number of career roles in high demand. It is also a great way to learn about the field and progress toward the Master’s degree in Business Administration (MBA).

Also, as part of the Bachelor of Science, Interdisciplinary Studies (IDS) program you can complement your minor with another area of study. The IDS program is similar to a General Studies program in that you can customize your learning experience, work toward your individual goals, and excel quickly toward your degree. Learn more about other approved minors in the program.

Note: You can also earn an Associate of Science, IDS with a minor in Business Administration.
