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 two eight-course (24 s.h.) minors open to students in other schools and colleges of the University that offer preparation for work in a profit or non-profit organization. The Business Minor will facilitate the transition into an M.B.A. program for undergraduate non-business majors. The General Business Studies Minor offers students who are not interested in attending an M.B.A. program in the future a more diverse foundation of business knowledge. After the student completes the requirements for either minor, that minor will be recorded on the student's official University transcript upon graduation.
