Minor Area of Specialization in Entrepreneurship for Non-Business Students (People & Society)

This minor is for non-business students who seek to learn about developing business plans or how to initiate and manage small business enterprises. Interested students should consult with an academic advisor in the School or College of their degree/major to determine if a minor in Entrepreneurship is acceptable. If so, neither advice nor consent from either the Office of Undergraduate Business Education or the Department of Management is necessary.
