The Entrepreneurship minor is designed for those students who are interested in starting their own business or to enhance a business that they are currently working in.
The course content of the minor is designed to meet the objective of developing the mindset, skills, competencies and experiential learning that enable students to function as entrepreneurs or as productive members of emerging, entrepreneurial firms.
The Entrepreneurship minor integrates the knowledge and experiences gained in other disciplines, as well as from the field of entrepreneurship, into an understanding of the process of new venture creation and the management of entrepreneurial businesses.
With the minor presenting entrepreneurial concepts from a generalist perspective, students will acquire knowledge to conceive, develop and launch new ventures and to turn innovative ideas into products that can be brought to market. Emphasis is placed on the managerial, legal, and marketing aspects of start-up businesses. The minor culminates with a juried business plan competition for financial backing and start-up funding support.
Students will also be encouraged to take advantage of internship opportunities through the Internship & Career Planning Office. Entrepreneurship minors are strongly encouraged to become active members in the ENACTUS program which focuses on helping entrepreneurs in the Manchester community.
