Apply to enroll in a minor program by filing the online Business Minor Application Form. Students will be notified by email of their acceptance into the program and the process for registration in the required Lindner classes. Most business minors require a 3.0 University GPA for admission (Professional Sales and Family Business require a 2.5 GPA; Business Administration requires a 2.0 GPA).
Required Lindner Courses
This Certificate enables specialization within the Entrepreneurship major. As such, students may double-count courses between the Entrepreneurship Major and Family Business Certificate. This is a special case, as the certificate is not a minor, but rather a recognition within Entrepreneurship.
