Many Temple University undergraduates are currently taking selected business courses to better prepare themselves for their careers after graduation. The Fox School of Business and Management offers two eight courses (24 s.h.) Business School minors to allow students in other schools and colleges of the University a chance to better prepare themselves for work in a profit or non-profit organization. The Business minor will also facilitate the transition into an MBA program for undergraduate non-business majors. The General Business Studies Minor is aimed at students who are seeking a more general understanding of business knowledge and who are not interested in attending an MBA program in the future. After the student completes the requirements for either minor, that minor will be recorded on the student's official University transcript upon graduation.
