Entrepreneurship is more than a set of tools and techniques for starting and growing a business. It is a mindset, a creative way of looking at opportunities, a passion, doing what one loves, a challenge, persistence and creating wealth and operating a business, whether one owns it or not. The Entrepreneurship minor brings an entrepreneurial perspective to students' major fields of study. Students are immersed in the entrepreneurial process through coursework, entrepreneurial projects and exposure to many entrepreneurs in the community. Students are prepared for the various aspects of starting a business, acquiring a business, corporate entrepreneurship or working for a small business.

Minimum 2.250 GPA; or if new freshman, no established GPA is required

Requirement to graduate with the entrepreneurship minor:
Minimum 2.250 GPA (including all attempts in 30000-4000 level courses) is required in the minor courses.
