Minors & Certificates


The College of Business offers opportunities for undergraduate students to enhance their major programs with minors, certificates, or specialized courses of study.

MINORS are official programs of study; when completed, they are noted on the student’s official transcript.  A minimum of 75% of all minor courses must be completed at FAU.

CERTIFICATES are noted on the student's transcript, but they do not require the completion of a bachelor’s degree to be recorded. In addition, students receive a document to note the completion of the program. Certificates require that 100% of the courses be taken at FAU.

SPECIALIZED COURSES are not part of any formal business degree, certificate, or minor program. Instead, they provide an opportunity for a student to build their own unique emphasis area to supplement a major. In addition, a limited number of non-AACSB accredited business-related courses are available outside of the College of Business such as the Actuarial Science Certificate (College of Science/Math Dept.) and the Commercial Music major/minor (College of Arts & Letters/Music Dept).

EXECUTIVE CONTINUING EDUCATION offers many business-related Certificate Programs and Seminars not for credit but for PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT.
