Students graduating with any degree are frequently required to make financial decisions for their department or areas of influence regardless of their undergraduate major. These decisions, for example consist of creating budgets and submitting proposals that require allocation of resources, cash, or other assets. An Accounting Minor will give students the skill and confidence to review budgets, ask the right business questions and make more informed business decisions in any field of their chosen endeavor.

The minor is open to all students at the University of Louisville. To be admitted, a student must have a B- or above in ACCT 201 and ACCT 202. Students must also maintain a cumulative 2.5 GPA in accounting classes to be awarded the minor.
