Business Administration (Minor)

Non-business majors at Saint Louis University can complete 30 hours of business coursework to earn a minor in business adminstration through the John Cook School of Business.

You’ll take courses in accounting, economics, finance, management and marketing. You can also pursue electives in topics such as macro and microeconomics, international business and operations.

Please note: If your major degree program shares at least 50 percent of the classes below, you are not eligible for this minor. For example, students in SLU's aviation management majors or health management programs may not earn a minor in business administration, because more than half the required coursework overlaps.

If you minor in business administration at SLU, you are responsible for completing any prerequisites as required and a minimum of 2.0 cumulative GPA is required in minor coursework.
