Business Minor at UW Tacoma

By Erica Coker, UW-Tacoma Admissions

The Milgard School of Business at UW Tacoma now offers a Minor in Business Administration. The minor is designed for undergraduate students in any non-business major or program to increase their understanding of business theory, practices, and applications within a wider economic and social context. The curriculum is designed to emphasize critical competencies, including strategic thinking, integrated business knowledge, communication, and teamwork.

The minor requires 30 credits, with a minimum of 20 credits in residence. There are four required courses (for a total of 20 credits): Introduction to Financial Accounting, Introduction to Microeconomics, Managing Organizations, and Introduction to Marketing Management. An additional 10 credits of electives, which should generally be taken after completion of all required courses, are selected from an approved list of classes. Students may request to transfer in up to 10 credits to be applied toward the required courses, and must earn a 2.0 GPA in each of the required courses. In addition, at least three courses for the Business Minor must be taken at the upper-division level.

The Business Administration degree program at the Milgard School of Business is designed to prepare students for entry into professional positions in business and government. The School is committed to advancing and disseminating business knowledge and to cultivating collaborative relationships with the community. Faculty and staff strive to develop leaders who will better global business in a socially responsible manner, integrating innovative teaching, relevant scholarship, and proactive service to business and academic communities.
