Many students at Marian who major in non-business fields like the arts and sciences strengthen their post-graduation career options by adding a minor in business to their plans of study.
Why? Because understanding the basics of sound business management can open doors to a range of employment opportunities, especially in the first few years after college.
The knowledge, skills, and experience you’ll gain by studying applied business practices and principles will serve you well, both in your professional life and your personal life.
College graduates who know how to manage people and projects, understand financial statements, and sell goods and services are always in demand.
In fact, there are very few jobs that don’t relate to some aspect of business. Whether you want to manage an art gallery, perform with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, or conduct scientific research in a medical lab, you’ll profit by studying how to make smart, strategic business decisions.
Marian University’s Byrum School of Business will provide you with real-world, significant business experience from your first day of classes. You will complete high-impact courses in which you learn business by actually doing business.
The Byrum School’s experiential curriculum focuses on applying what you learn to:
Along the way, you will closely communicate and collaborate with faculty, peers, and local business executives and civic leaders. The best part? You’ll earn your minor after completing two intensive, immersive courses. And you’ll obtain valuable skills that can help you manage your personal finances, plan for a secure future, and make you more attractive to employers upon graduation.
Our business minor is for students who will earn a bachelor’s degree in a field other than business. If that describes you, you’ll complete 18 credits of business coursework through two nine-credit courses:
