Minor in Accounting

About the Minor

Accounting is the language of financial data. Whether you are an artist, pro athlete, restaurateur, or CEO of a nonprofit or fortune 100 company, having basic understanding of accounting will equip you to make sound business decisions. The Accounting minor is available to all students enrolled at Drexel University. 


  • No more than 2 courses or 8.0 credits can be counted towards any additional major/minor/co-major or certificate.
  • No more than two transfer courses may be used to complete this minor. Transfer credits must be taken before matriculated at Drexel.
  • Students should check the pre-requisites of all classes when selecting electives. It is the responsibility of the student to know pre-requisites.
  • Cannot do a major and a minor in the same field of study.

All prospective students should meet with an advisor from the College as soon as possible.
