Management Minors

Minor in Entrepreneurial Studies

The minor in entrepreneurial studies is especially valuable for students in other colleges who are inclined to apply their passion to their own business rather than that of someone else. The focus is on generating ideas based on creativity, opportunity identification, feasibility studies, start-up activities, early-stage strategies, and new initiatives within corporate environments. Students have unique opportunities to be involved in business partnerships and to find creative solutions to real business problems while completing their degrees.

This minor is offered in a traditional classroom format or as an online minor. For more information about the online minor, contact Educational Outreach. Students must declare format.
