ENTR – Entrepreneurship course descriptions


TBD (director), Kate Nesbit, Maggie Schlerman, Julie Summers

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. In each setting, the solution to any problem calls for specific skills, which we have defined as our entrepreneurship program outcomes:

  • The ability to recognize opportunities.
  • The ability to capitalize on these opportunities by generating new ideas and marshaling resources.
  • The ability to think in a creative and critical manner.
  • The ability to create and operate a new venture.

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.
