Minor in Sales

WKU is proud to offer a Minor in Sales as a potential degree offering, making it one of the few business schools in the United States offering this degree! The minor in sales (Code 452) is a wonderful complement for students majoring in a different field, but interested in the profession of sales. We currently have approximately two dozen different majors taking our minor in sales. A combination of our sales minor with a variety of fields to include all other business majors, advertising, communication, PR, health care and hospitality services, engineering, fashion retailing or many others will provide a student with very strong career options.
