The Entrepreneurship minor provides students with the same basic business knowledge and skills as the Business Minor, but with a strong emphasis on innovation and problem-solving. Students will be exposed to entrepreneurial thinking, opportunity identification, capital funding, and other aspects of the entrepreneurial process applicable in business start-ups, as well as in existing businesses, governmental organizations, and nonprofits. This minor will prepare students to succeed as innovators and value creators in a rapidly changing world.
The minor is made up of six courses, five of which are required. Three of the five required courses provide an essential background in the fundamental business disciplines most necessary for the entrepreneur -- accounting, finance, and marketing. The two remaining required courses focus on the basics of entrepreneurship and managing small businesses. An elective course allows the student to explore further in entrepreneurship, marketing, or management.
