Students attend Valpo’s college for business majors

Minor Programs for Non-Majors

An undergraduate business major is not the only route to a career in business: some fields require backgrounds in science, engineering, language or arts study, or social sciences. The College of Business offers a number of minors and a certificate program to Valpo students who are majoring in fields other than business.

Some of our minors plan to complete MBA degrees after graduating from college; others envision careers in public service, arts administration or other fields in which an understanding of business concepts and practices is an invaluable addition to subject-matter expertise. These programs meet the needs of those students.
