Who minored in something else that they feel is beneficial to their work/craft today?
Marketing. Later I went back for an MBA.

UX Design (if available)

I did linguistics, and took some engineering business classes. I don’t know if I would recommend the linguistics.

Personally I’ve benefited from graphic design, anthropology, marketing and I’m currently going through an MBA program now. I would advise holding off on the MBA until you have some years experience under your belt though.
I’ve seen others benefit from having engineering and lab/testing experience as well.
