Linfield promotes two new minors

The business department held an informational meeting April 2 to get people interested in two minors that were added last fall.

In the fall of 2012, the business department ended its general business minor and added two new minors, management and sports management.

“We wanted to make one that was more useful across campus,” said Denise Farag, assistant professor of business.

The management minor will give students a background in leadership and also let students gain experience with people skills.

“The management courses have provided me with leadership tools that will help me lead teams in the international environment,” senior Johnathon Bosch said.

The sports management minor is set up as an interdepartmental minor with the business, economics, philosophy and health, human performance and athletics departments.

The faculty were interested in making the minor because they found that students connected with class materials more when using sports examples.

“I wanted to minor in sports management because I have played sports my entire life and hope to work in the sports business industry,” senior Rachel Dewolf said.

These minors are not exclusively for business majors.
