As a student at Otago you could choose to complete a minor in a business subject, or choose from subjects offered by the Division of Humanities or Division of Science.
Adding a business minor is a great choice, even if you aren’t completing a BCom, but feel an understanding of a business subject would be useful.
Minors are your opportunity to turn an interest into a qualification by completing a selection of papers in a particular subject area (normally involving approved papers a 100-300 level), which will be acknowledged on your academic record.
