Interdisciplinary Program Minor


Statement of Philosophy

The entrepreneurship minor allows students of all academic disciplines to develop an entrepreneurial mindset. This enables students to envision things that don’t currently exist, identify problems worth solving, and develop an ability to affect change in a positive manner. This may include the creation of a new business venture, serving as an intrapreneur in a corporate setting or solving a community problem through a social entrepreneurial solution. In each setting, the solution to any problem calls for specific skills, which we have defined as our entrepreneurship program outcomes:

Students will gain these skills through a highly experiential, hands-on approach coupled with the guidance of mentors.  

Minor Restriction

A student cannot declare both the Entrepreneurship Minor and the Not-for-Profit Minor.
