Minor in Retail Management

The Minor in Retail Management, which is administered by the Department of Management, prepares students for careers in the field of retailing, and financial retailing. It is designed to enhance the career potential of students studying general management and marketing by providing a program of study dedicated toward a specific industry and career path. The minor will also be particularly valuable to students in advertising and public relations, finance, and food industry management.

The minor is available as an elective to students who are enrolled in bachelor’s degree programs at Michigan State University in the Eli Broad College of Business, in the Advertising major, or in the Food Industry Management major.  With the approval of the department and college that administers the student’s degree program, the courses that are used to satisfy the minor may also be used to satisfy the requirements for the bachelor’s degree.

Students who plan to complete the requirements for the minor should apply through the undergraduate advisor in the Undergraduate Academic Services Office in the Broad College of Business. Students must have completed either ACC 201 or ACC 202 prior to admission to the minor.
