Entrepreneurship Minor


What Will I Learn?


The entrepreneurship minor provides you with the basic knowledge to start your own business. Many students in business and non-business disciplines want to eventually start their own business in their field after a few years of experience. For example:

  • An environmental science major might want to start an environmental testing lab
  • An art student might want to open an art gallery or museum
  • A fitness and wellness leadership student might want to own a fitness center
  • An expeditionary studies major might want to have their own tour company
  • A communication major might want to start their own public relations firm
  • A marketing major might start an adve1tising agency or marketing research film

Combining their major with a minor in entrepreneurship will add to your credentials when developing a business plan and seeking financing for your startup.
