Minor: Management

We invite you to consider a Minor in Management. The study of management offers you the opportunity to develop skills in utilizing human, physical and economic resources to achieve organizational objectives. These are important cross-functional skills in today’s highly competitive job market. As institutional leaders of the future, students of Management will be endowed with the skills and knowledge to develop their own human potential as well as help others to achieve a common mission.


Students completing a degree in the College of Business: There is no need to submit an application for the minor separate from the degree application. Minors in the College of Business will automatically be certified along with the degree certification, provided that the minor has been formally declared and is listed on the electronic degree application.

Students with majors outside the College of Business: Submit the STAR audit for the minor following the directions below. The application MUST be submitted BEFORE the degree application deadline for the semester in which you plan to graduate. Check advising schedules for specific dates each term.

Minors cannot be earned after the degree has been conferred.


This minor is not open to majors in the Bachelor of Individualized Studies and the Bachelor of Applied Studies.


Please contact the Management Department for more information.


Consult the College of Business section in NMSU’s online Catalogs for information on our minors.
