Minor in Business

The business minor is an 18 credit program designed to provide fundamental business and management knowledge to undergraduate students in any major outside of business, such as science, engineering, architecture and computer science.

Why Do a Minor in Business?

No matter what your major, it is likely that you will be hired by a business organization when you graduate. A minor in business can advance your career by improving your prospects in the job market and giving you the tools and skills you need if you plan to open your own business one day.                  

A minor in business will:

  • Help you support proposals and requests with business concepts that managers understand
  • Teach you how to map and manage business processes
  • Influence managers and non-technical professionals
  • Fulfill requirements for the NJIT Honors program
  • Give you a head start on an MBA degree
