The Entrepreneurship minor is designed for students in any major who are interested in developing their ideas either by starting their own business or working within a company. All that is required is an entrepreneurial spirit.

The 24-credit minor includes non-business and business tracks and allows students elective choices to pursue their entrepreneurial interest. The minor has a strong experiential component—50% of the curriculum can be described as “active learning.”

Other entrepreneurship education opportunities beyond the curriculum minor include:

  • Pioneer Launch Lab
  • Elevator Pitch and Business Model competition
  • Networking events
