Why Minor in Entrepreneurship?

We take a practical approach to learning, getting you out of the classroom to test your ideas out by soliciting feedback from actual potential customers.

You will learn to identify opportunities in the marketplace and develop solutions for existing problems in society, while gaining skills in finance and marketing.

You have the opportunity to earn seed funding to launch your business and begin earning sales before you finish the minor.

Specifically, our entrepreneurship courses cover:

  • Developing an entrepreneurial mindset
