Minor in Business and Development Studies
The Minor Concept
A minor gives you the opportunity of having a second specialisation in your degree. The minor is a bundle of three to four electives that can be chosen separately but if chosen together rewards a minor.
The Business and Development Studies minor provides a one semester concentrated introduction to development issues from a business perspective. The minor is designed for students that want to build specific qualifications on business and development related issues to complement their master degree specialization.
