Default Should I take a business minor?

I'm an engineering freshman in NUS. I have interest in business and plan to take a few biz modules of my interest to fulfill my UEM requirements. I am considering to take a biz minor as I can earn it without taking extra credits, though it means that I have to take only biz modules outside my faculty modules and I would not be able to explore other modules of interest.

Is taking a biz minor worth it? Do employers look at your minor as a fresh graduate during job interviews? Will a biz minor grant me an edge over my peers?

it won't make a significant difference.
at least not as much as a double major, doing an internship, going for exchange or taking up some leadership positions.
