Why does this program require a minor?

The Bachelor of Science in Business Economics blends knowledge of economics with business skills and offers students an option to make their degree unique to their intended career goals by requiring a minor. For instance, a student with a major in Business Economics and a minor in Theater will be better prepared to oversee theater operations, as compared to a student of business without a minor. Other minors, such as in Health Science, prepare students for management positions in a wide variety of nonprofit or other organizations by providing meaningful contextual background and disciplinary knowledge.
