The minor in Global Business Strategies for the Earth, Energy, and Materials Industries is a joint offering of the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences and the Smeal College of Business. The minor introduces students to financial, investment, and management concepts applied to private sector organizations whose operation emphasizes the Earth and its environment, the energy and mineral industries, or the development of new and enhanced materials. The minor focuses on the leadership and information strategies characteristic of enterprises that are succeeding in a rapidly integrating global economy.

The minor provides science and engineering students an introduction to basic entrepreneurial and business concepts to help prepare them for success in a changing professional environment. It provides students in the Smeal College an opportunity to focus on business strategies in the Earth resources, environmental, and materials industries. A minimum of 18 credits is required for the minor. ECON 002 is a prerequisite for several of the courses in the minor.
