The WPI Business minor requires the completion of six courses from several business subject areas. The Capstone course, Growing and Managing New Ventures, uses and integrates the functional areas of business in a case and project-oriented mode. While the course is focused primarily on new business ventures, the general principles provide students with a comprehensive look at business operations. Visit the catalog to learn about course options.

This minor is not available to students majoring in business, management engineering, or management information systems at WPI
