The curriculum will give students the knowledge and skills they need to create and adjust their personal business concept, develop the concept into a feasible business venture, draft the business plan, launch the business, and manage the business. The curriculum will emphasize flexibility and innovation, and entrepreneurship will be approached as a way of thinking and acting that can be applied in multiple contexts such as new ventures and existing corporations. The minor is available to business and non-business majors.
