The Engineering Business Minor is a collaborative effort between U of T Engineering and the Rotman School of Management.
It is designed specifically for engineering students interested in learning more about the business dimension of engineering — from finance and economics to management and leadership. Courses cover wealth production and creation, accounting, research and development, management, economics and entrepreneurship, all within a global context.
With the exception of Engineering Science students enrolled in Math, Statistics or Finance Majors, all Engineering undergraduates may enrol.
Engineering Business Minor enrolment form.
Note: A student may only receive credit on their transcript for one of the following: Engineering Business Certificate, Entrepreneurship Certificate, or Engineering Business Minor.
Students in the Engineering Business Minor must successfully complete a minimum of six (6) one-semester courses as outlined below.
