Academics at ESF: Undergraduate Minors
Management Minor

Coordinator: Rene Germain

The management minor is available to all ESF undergraduate students who want to develop greater skills and knowledge of business fundamentals. In addition to understanding basic financial and managerial accounting principles, students can further develop focus in their minor through coursework in entrepreneurship, finance, marketing, human resources, and other topics.

Admission to the minor requires sophomore status, a cumulative grade point average of 2.70 or better and permission (via the ESF Minor Enrollment Form) of the Coordinator of the minor. Normally, students are allowed to take only one management course at Syracuse University's Whitman School per semester, so careful planning is required.

The management minor requires fifteen (15) credits, six (6) credits from a required course and nine (9) credits of elective courses. It is the responsibility of the student to meet any prerequisites associated with any courses in the minor.
