    • MMC’s Business Management minor provided me with flexibility with the curriculum. After learning the basics of business, I was able to invest my time with the aspects of business that interested me, which was primarily accounting and financing. This insight and knowledge not only inspires me to start my own business, but gives me the power to do so.
