The Bachelor of Accountancy degree requires a minor, which may be fulfilled by completing the requirements as defined by any department that formally grants a minor. Minors in the School of Business are also available to accountancy students.

In addition, the School of Accountancy partners with the Center for Manufacturing Excellence to offer a minor in manufacturing engineering for accountancy majors. The CME minor focuses on lean manufacturing with quality control and cost reduction. This is done through a combination of classroom lectures, team building exercises, and factory-floor hands-on activities. In CME classes, you will not only learn concepts of manufacturing, you will manufacture products.
