Reid Brost came to Nebraska Business from Rapid City, South Dakota, with an underlying goal to challenge himself and make his education matter by using his experiences to help others. As a finance major, he knew he could accomplish those objectives, but when a guest speaker in his Intermediate Microeconomics (ECON 312) class shared details of a new Law and Business Minor being launched at the college, a clearer picture of a future legal career formed in Brost’s mind.

Omaha native and University of Nebraska–Lincoln senior Luke Pavel transferred to Nebraska from a small college to complete a degree in advertising and public relations. Pavel, looking for a way to expand his skill set, added a business minor to round out his experience. Once he started taking classes, he opted to add a business minor after talking to his academic advisor. The business minor for non-business majors, offered by the College of Business, is open to all students at Nebraska. The 18-credit-hour minor provides a critical overview in areas such as accounting, business law, economics, finance, marketing and management.
