The Ross School of Business offers a three-year Bachelor's of Business Administration (BBA). It grounds students in the main areas of business while providing a broad liberal-arts education. Students enter the program after the equivalent of one or more years at the University of Michigan, then continue at Ross for three years of full-time enrollment (fall-winter). For further information, visit the Ross School of Business website (www.bus.umich.edu/Admissions/BBA/Whyross.htm).
The Ross School also offers a Minor in Business. The Minor in Business is neither a substitute for the BBA degree nor a fallback for students who are not accepted into the BBA program.
Courses in Business
Any undergraduate student may take business school courses without declaring the Minor in Business. However, students in the BBA program and students with a declared Minor in Business will have priority registration over other students.
Most courses offered by the Ross School of Business generate non-LSA credit.

Advising for Business Minor
Students admitted to the Minor in Business should continue to meet regularly with academic advisors and career counselors in their home schools. Information sessions on the minor and the application process will be available for prospective minor applicants each Winter term. Once accepted into the minor, Ross advisors are available by appointment to review and develop plans to complete the Minor in Business and to verify completion of the Minor in Business. The Ross Academic Advising Director will communicate with LSA to officially coordinate the notation of the Minor in Business on student records.
Because admissions decisions will be made in July, after registration for the Fall term has occurred, students applying to the Minor in Business are advised to enroll in a full schedule of courses during the regular registration timeline. Students should select coursework in consultation with their home school academic advisors that will match both their degree requirements and interests.
During the regular Fall registration process, students may choose to enroll in Ross courses for which they meet prerequisites without being admitted to the minor. Those students who have applied to the minor will likely want to consider enrolling in one or more Ross classes prior to final decisions on minor admission. Students who are later admitted to the minor may want to make some adjustments to their schedules in July, if necessary, but will likely not need to make widespread changes to their course schedules. Students who are not admitted to the minor, but who have registered for Ross courses may still choose to complete business courses through Ross to align with their interests, so will also not need to make schedule adjustments during the summer, unless desired.
