The Engineering Business Minor is a collaborative effort between 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.

Departmental Thesis course may be counted as one credit (if an H course) or two credits (if a Y course) if the topic is closely related to Engineering Business. This requires the approval of the Director of the Engineering Business Minor.
Effective 2014 Summer Session: GGR 221, New Economic Spaces, is no longer an eligible elective for the Engineering Business Minor. If you took the course prior to the 2014 Summer Session, you may still count this towards your minor. If the course is taken after this time, it will not count towards the minor.
