The graduate minor in business administration allows students in non-business graduate programs at Samford University to pursue business coursework as a part of their graduate degree. The minor consists of 18 credit hours of graduate level business courses. The Brock School of Business offers this program to graduate students at Samford University to provide them with a background in business education to supplement their primary graduate degree.
The primary graduate program is responsible for determining acceptance of business courses as electives towards the student's primary graduate degree. Students may complete the minor even if the primary degree does not accept the business credits as elective credit towards the primary degree.
Students who wish to pursue this minor should fill out a change of program form with signatures from the primary academic advisor and the new business advisor. Admission to the minor is based on a status of good standing in a Samford graduate program. If a student decides to seek entry to the MBA, he/she is required to take the GMAT or GRE and follow the admission requirements in place at the time of application.
Graduate business minor courses cannot be waived, substituted,shared, or transferred. All coursework must be completed at the Brock School of Business. Please see the Samford University Catalog and the semester schedules for prerequisite requirements.
