The Sprott School of Business offers three minor options for students outside of business:

  • Minor in Business (also Minor in Business for Engineering Students)
  • Minor in Entrepreneurship
  • Minor in Arts Management

For students considering or enrolled in a business/entrepreneurship minor, please visit the Student Academic Success Centre (SASC) for information about academic advising and registration.

Minor in Business

This option is for students in a degree program other than the Bachelor of Commerce or Bachelor of International Business who want to gain business fundamentals.

Eligiblity for Minor in Business

Only students pursuing undergraduate programs (except BCom and BIB) requiring at least 20.0 credits to graduate (Honors) and who have completed at least 4.0 credits (first year) towards their degree, with a minimum CGPA of 7.0, may be admitted to the Minor in Business.The courses listed are grouped by areas and specializations. Some elective courses need additional prerequisites beyond those courses appearing above them. Please refer to the Undergraduate Calendar to ensure you have ALL prerequisites before registering for these courses.

Please note: You may wish to choose courses that compliment your primary area of study. Note that almost all upper level business courses have lower level prerequisites… so please choose your courses carefully.

Students in some degree programs may not have sufficient “free” electives to complete the requirements for the MiB beyond the specific credits designated for their degree. In such cases, students choosing to pursue the Minor option, will have to fulfill the requirements of the Minor over and above the requirements of their primary degree program.

The Minor notation cannot be pursued or the notation added to a degree after graduation.
