You need strong computer skills, whether or not you’re a business major. The minor in business information technology offers tracks for both business and non-business students.
The non-business track is for students who want to enhance their business computer skills. This 15-credit minor is not open to students who already have a minor in another business subject, including consumer finance, entrepreneurship, foundations of business, foundations of management, legal studies in business, marketing, professional selling, or risk management and insurance.
The business-only track is designed specifically for business students (except those majoring in computer information systems). Coursework (15 credit hours) ranges from project management and systems application development to web design.
Business students who are majoring in operations management also may choose a special 15-credit minor in industrial technology. Course work possibilities focus on technical knowledge useful in such pursuits as plant management, including manufacturing operations, industrial safety, industrial electronics, and computer-aided design.
