Entrepreneurship Minor


The University offers an online minor in entrepreneurship that is open to students from all majors. It provides students with knowledge and skills to think creatively in their professional and personal lives as well as the necessary knowledge to start a new venture. The minor is excellent preparation for students to learn creative problem-solving and networking skills of value to those who plan to become business owners, develop new businesses in a corporate context, work in the gig economy, or develop side businesses to supplement primary employment.
