General Business – for non-business majors
Students completing majors outside of the Neeley School may pursue a General Business minor. The goal of the General Business minor is to provide students in other disciplines with a broad base of knowledge about the business world by giving them an understanding and appreciation of business and its social and ethical environment. In addition, through introductory courses in the functional areas of business, the students are introduced to the rudimentary tools used in business settings to analyze problems and make decisions.
The general business minor requires 18 semester hours of coursework (21 hours including pre-requisite). Once a student matriculates at TCU, all coursework in the general business minor must be completed at TCU.
Students must complete ECON 10223: Introductory Microeconomics before being able to enroll in any course for the Business minor.
To declare a General Business minor, students must have: 1) completed ECON 10223, 2) a cumulative GPA of 2.5, 3) sophomore standing, and 4) one FULL semester completed AT TCU.
