Global Leadership Minor Students


The global leadership minor is available to both business and non-business Nebraska students, except international business majors. To earn this minor, you’ll take four courses and study abroad for at least three credit hours. We encourage international business majors to supplement your degree with a minor in a different area of interest. Make an appointment in MyPlan to meet with an academic advisor and declare your minor.
