The Business Cyber Security minor provides students with a general introduction to the principles and practices of cyber security in business and organizational settings. Through this minor, students will gain the skills necessary to participate in the full spectrum of security program planning, including security policy development and planning for incident response, business continuity, disaster recovery, and crisis management. The minor will also provide students with the skills required for the more applied practices of networks security, application security, threat detection analysis, prevention, and remediation. Given the need for good cyber hygiene as part of a workforce, the business security minor is an excellent counterpart to any undergraduate program at The University of Alabama.
The Statistics minor equips students with a general introduction to statistical theory followed by further training in statistical methods and computational statistics.

The Statistics minor is an excellent counterpart to any undergraduate program at The University of Alabama.
Supply Chain Management (SCM) refers to the coordination of processes across a supply chain to effectively manage the flow of materials, services, and information to satisfy customer demand. Our SCM minor follows the Supply Chain Operations Reference (SCOR) model focusing on the Make-Source-Deliver processes of supply chains. The four required courses of the minor support the SCOR model.
The Supply Chain Management concentration is restricted to Operations Management majors only.
