Business Administration Minor

SBGE Student Elena Walking Through Tiffany Loop

The Business Administration minor gives you a clear understanding of how business works, and, ultimately, gives you a strategy for using business as a tool to serve. After all, we believe that service is the first-order purpose of a business. Profit, rather than being an end in itself, is simply the means. In SPU’s School of Business, Government, and Economics, you’ll learn a wide spectrum of fundamental business principles to give you a start in the right direction.


When you minor in Business Administration, you learn from professors with decades of practical business and industry success. You will also learn in an environment that emphasizes both competence and integrity within the context of Christian faith and values. You’ll benefit from a unique approach that integrates the practical applications of business principles and the tools to put these principles into practice.
