The 18-credit interdisciplinary minor in Global Enterprise Technology will prepare students from any undergraduate major to understand how one develops and manages global enterprise information systems, such as those used by the banking, insurance, medical, and retail industries. The minor is flexible enough so that students from finance and technology majors can add to their current knowledge, and students from non-technical backgrounds, including the humanities, can develop foundational knowledge to pursue careers in industries with large-scale systems. Since these systems are central to most global companies, gaining an understanding of how enterprise systems are developed is useful to students entering the workforce across many careers - including finance, business strategy and technology focused careers.


Applicants must have a grade point average of at least 3.0. Depending on available spaces, students with GPA’s below 3.0 may be considered, however, there may be times when GPA requirements will be higher than 3.0 due to space restrictions.

Students considering the minor may delay enrolling until the third year of study, but are encouraged to meet with an Information Studies advisor during the first or second year.

The 18-credit minor program in Global Enterprise Technology can be taken with any SU major, with the approval of the student’s home college.
