    Minor in Entrepreneurship

    A minor in Entrepreneurship is available to business and non-business students. The minor’s focus is on building an entrepreneurial mindset in our students with options to learn about issues related to family-led businesses, legal and human resources issues in small businesses, as well as financing and effective management of small and startup businesses. All students must meet the individual course prerequisites (please see requirements) before taking courses toward the Entrepreneurship minor.

    For business students, earning the entrepreneurship minor requires declaring it to the Advising Office. Students outside the business school need to declare their intent to their major department (Entrepreneurship must be an approved minor for your department).

    Students in General Business may choose to pursue the Entrepreneurship minor in addition to the required non-business minor; however, the requirements for the Entrepreneurship minor may not be used as major course requirements. Please see an Advisor if you have questions.

    A minor in entrepreneurship consists of any six of the following courses:

    • ACCY 201
    • ACCY 202
    • GB 350
    • GB 370 OR MGMT 371
