Minor in Entrepreneurship Will Be Offered


October 22, 2010

The College of Business Administration  will offer a minor in entrepreneurship for non-business majors beginning in fall 2011.

The college has offered a major in entrepreneurship since 2004. The new 21-credit minor will include courses in economics, business statistics and accounting, as well as entrepreneurship, a business elective and an applied experiential course.

“The primary goal for the minor in entrepreneurship is to provide students in non-business fields a basic but limited insight into how to use self-employment as a means to live fulfilling lives,” according to the program proposal, which was approved by the Board of Undergraduate Studies. “The minor supports the goals of the cross-campus entrepreneurship initiative which include instilling entrepreneurial thinking across campus in many disciplines and providing learning opportunities for students in developing their own entrepreneurial ideas and ventures and working on cross functional teams.”
