The business administration minor for non-School of Business students is designed to not only serve as a minor for non-School of Business students but also as Pre-MBA program for students who choose to pursue graduate study in the field of business.
The minor is known as the "4+1" program, where you can obtain the Business Administration minor and then continue to the Alfred MBA program and be able to complete it in one year. The minor is an additional twenty-eight (28) credit hours for non-School of Business students, totaling nine courses in accounting, business, economics, finance, management, and marketing.
The core courses include:
- ACCT 211 - Financial Accounting
- ACCT 212 - Managerial Accounting - (Prerequisite: ACCT 211)
- BUSI 113 - Business Statistics (MATH 241, ENGR 305, POLS/SOCI 230, or PSYC 220 may be substituted)

A maximum of 30 credits in courses offered by the School of Business may be taken by non-business students. Satisfaction of this minor fulfills all foundation requirements for the Alfred University MBA.
Completion of the 4+1 undergraduate coursework does not automatically admit a student into the MBA program.
At least half of your coursework for the minors in our College of Business must be completed at Alfred University. A grade point average of a "C" (2.0) or better must be attained in courses submitted for completion of the minor.
