You can now earn a business minor in two summers

Whether you'd like to build up your résumé, impress potential employers or learn something new, adding a minor in business and entrepreneurship to any degree can help you do all of that – and much more. And now you have the opportunity to do so in just two summers.

"[The minor] differentiates you among people who don't have it and shows that you have interest in management roles, and you will have more opportunities," says OSU student Geoffrey Wildish.

Read more about Geoffrey's experience and how the business minor can benefit you and your future career.
