Minor in Business

Why Minor in Business?

The Minor in Business will provide the LAU general student community with the opportunity to combine a good understanding of business with their primary studies.

No matter what your field is, a minor in business will provide you with the basic knowledge in economics and business areas like finance, management and marketing, and with essential tools that would be applied and proven useful in the real world. The business minor puts a proper perspective to the changing global market, enabling a solid grounding in general professional competence.
