The entrepreneurship minor provides students from all academic disciplines with entrepreneurial skills needed to create successful startup ventures, new corporate initiatives, and potent non-profit organizations. This minor is a great complement to students’ education because it adds broad entrepreneurial thinking skills to the deep discipline-based expertise provided by academic majors. Participants will learn how to recognize opportunities, formulate solutions, and deliver results to those in need. These skills are essential to starting new businesses, and are valued by small and large organizations seeking employees who can create and lead innovative new initiatives.
