Well, ultimately I want to start my own engineering firm so I was hoping on choosing classes geared towards my goals. I have to take all the LD courses but any 5 UD courses from this list.

Is this worth it? Well the business school recently started some undergraduate classes so I may take those too or instead. I'm thinking of not even pursuiting a minor if these classes aren't worth it. I mainly wanted a minor to become familiar with economics first before I understand business. But I don't know.
Well my goal is to start either a civil engineering, construction, or maybe an aerospace engineering firm (composites). Well I don't know yet, I think starting a small civil engineering firm has an advantage over aerospace firms.
