The business minor can be paired with any College of Arts & Sciences major, complementing the Willamette liberal arts experience with professional training in management and powerful tools that employers value.

- Introduction to Management and Leadership
- Accounting Principles and Practices
- Organizations—Design, Management, and Change
- Managerial Finance
- Marketing Principles, Management, and Strategy
Students may register for individual courses, but priority will be given to those participating in the business minor. Students who complete the minor will have access to specialized career services, offered through Atkinson's Career Management.
