Entrepreneurship Minor
Entrepreneurship Minor Course Catalog Information

The minor in Entrepreneurship is targeted toward students who might not traditionally interact with the College of Business and the local entrepreneurial community. The goal of the minor is to teach students how to create successful businesses based on the expertise developed in their majors. Two tracks will be offered, one with a business emphasis, the other with an interdisciplinary focus on communication, geopolitical and cultural diversity and personal development. These tracks allow the student to tailor the minor to their needs according to the type of business they plan to pursue.


  • Gain the knowledge and skills to start your own business, work at a startup or lead growth for an established company
  • Innovate and think creatively about problem-solving and strategy
  • Closely aligns with the minor in business, providing the opportunity to double minor
