Entrepreneurship Minor


The minor in entrepreneurship is intended for nonbusiness students who want to learn about innovation processes and the managerial and leadership skills required to create a new venture. The entrepreneurship minor gives students the opportunity to envision, develop, test, and build a for-profit or nonprofit venture working within an interdisciplinary framework of exploration and self-discovery.

The minor in entrepreneurship is open to students from all majors except business administration, accounting, and general social science with a concentration in applied economics, business, and society. Completing the minor requires 24 credits of course work, which can be completed in one academic year.

Students may declare a minor in entrepreneurship online at the college’s website, where a checklist of requirements can be found. Advising assistance is available in the Office of Undergraduate Advising.
