Students are expected to fulfill all prerequisites necessary for courses within the minor. Prerequisites do not count toward the minor unless otherwise noted. Courses in accounting and marketing may be taken in the School of Business, the School of Professional and Continuing Studies, or by transfer in consultation with one of the concentration's coordinators. A concentration coordinator should be consulted for approval of the internship as appropriate for the concentration.

The arts management coordinators may be consulted for additional recommended courses in areas of arts, business, or leadership that support the student's particular area of interest. An arts course in an area other than a student's major or minor is encouraged, and may include applied music study or music ensembles.
