Computer science and business are both highly desired, especially when mixed together. Many CS companies start small and these companies need employees that have the basics to help make a company grow successfully. Business is also desirable with CS because it can add management and communication skills to a technological degree. Students that choose this option are setting themselves up for a number of opportunities:

  1. Students gain the experience to create their own start-up or business.
  2. Students have the background necessary to work with other smaller companies.
  3. Students can work with a business advisor to be prepared for an MBA program.

STEPS TO DECLARE OPTION:

  1. Meet with CS Advisor to discuss and declare the option.
  2. Review the business minor declaration requirements:  THERE IS A REQUIRED ONLINE ORIENTATION!
