Faculty

  • Dax Jacobson, Academic Advisor

Students in any major across campus can elect to complete an entrepreneurship minor in order to learn the art and science of starting your own business. Students interested in adding a minor in entrepreneurship to your academic programs are encouraged to contact a faculty advisor in entrepreneurship to discuss how this minor can assist you in achieving your career goals.

Course work required in the Entrepreneurship Minor cannot be used again as electives in Management, Marketing or other majors. Only course work that is required in both programs can be used twice (e.g., ACCT 213).

Program Goals

The minor in entrepreneurship is designed to:

  • Help students learn to think in highly unstructured and ambiguous situations where you learn from feedback, including failure.
  • Equip students with a unique set of skills related to conceptualizing, planning, testing, and launching a new enterprise.
  • Help students practice entrepreneurship in a safe environment where making mistakes and learning from failure are encouraged.
  • Equip students with help from local startups that contribute to economic development and prosperity.
