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.

Availability of Minors and Certificates

Some business minors are available only to students in business core majors (COB majors that require a group of upper division business courses known as the business core).  However, many of our minors are available to students who are not pursuing the business core.  If you are not a business core major, click the link below to download the list of minors and certificates available to you.
