Business Administration majors may not minor in Data Science- Business Analytics but may minor in Data Science.

Information Technology Literacy Proficiency: Each Business Administration major must demonstrate proficiency in four distinct Microsoft Office products: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook. Proficiency is demonstrated by passing a Microsoft Office Specialist Certification exam in each of the following: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook. In addition, each major must pass a Microsoft Office Expert Certification exam in Word and one in Excel. These certifications are prerequisites for certain BUS 200- and 300- level courses, so students should begin the certification process by the beginning of sophomore year. If your course expenses exceed the standard financial-aid allowance for books/supplies/fees, check with Financial Aid about other options.
