Minors and Concentrations

As a student in the Clark H. Byrum School of Business, you can add a concentration or minor to your chosen field of study by using your electives to take courses in another discipline or focus area.

Since all business majors take a set of common core classes during the first two years of study, it is easy for you to change majors within the business school during this time.

Regardless of your major or whether you choose to pursue a minor or concentration, you will experience a hands-on approach to learning about business that connects values, leadership and action.

First and foremost, we are focused on preparing you to be an innovative, ethical leader who can make a difference in whatever industry or area of business you choose to enter.
