The Business and Entrepreneurship minor teaches students to recognize business opportunities, equips them with skills to secure funding, and provides insight on how to manage the commercialization of the business opportunity. Fundamental business classes are combined with those designed to specifically address the challenges of launching a new venture or an idea within an existing organization. With an innovative curriculum taught by dedicated professors, the Business and Entrepreneurship minor provides a fundamental stepping stone on the road to identifying and commercializing business opportunities in any type of organization.
