Many Temple University undergraduates are currently taking selected business courses to prepare themselves better for their careers after graduation. The Fox School of Business and Management offers a number of minor and certificate programs to facilitate this preparation. Some programs are open to all students in the university; others are restricted to a limited student population. Requirements for a minor or certificate must be completed prior to graduation and minors will be recorded on the student's official university transcript upon graduation. Courses cannot be used to meet minor or certificate requirements if already used to meet the requirements for a major or a different minor or certificate. Please visit our minor and certificate web site for further information.
