The Sustainable Business minor (15 credits) prepares students for developing, launching, growing, and managing triple bottom line businesses. By balancing social and environmental responsibilities with financial profitability, students learn approaches to creating businesses that do well by doing good. Students are encouraged to hone their skills by taking part in an internship or practicum to round out their educational experiences.
Students who wish to pursue the minor must complete a minor declaration form available online on the USM Registration & Scheduling website.
The requirements for admission to the minor are completion of at least 12 credits at USM with a grade point average of 2.33 or higher.
School of Business majors may count up to two specified (see minor requirements) business core courses (6 credits) in both the Business Core and a Business minor. The remaining minor courses (9 credits) cannot double count in the minor and the business major courses or between two business minors. School of Business majors are allowed to declare more than one business minor.
Non School of Business students can only have one business minor.
