Entrepreneurship Minor

The Herb Kelleher Center for Entrepreneurship is proud to announce the launch of the new cross-campus Entrepreneurship Minor.

The Entrepreneurship Minor aims to equip students with the perspectives, knowledge, and skills necessarily to engage in entrepreneurship, broadly defined to include the launch and development of new businesses as well as the growth and renewal of existing enterprises. The broader objectives of the program include equipping students with talents that will propel their success in a knowledge-based, innovation-driven economy, stimulating entrepreneurship and innovation across a broad range of industries and settings, and transforming students’ lives by developing in them a passion for entrepreneurship.

The Entrepreneurship Minor is designed for undergraduate students interested in starting their own business ventures, creating and managing new ventures or products within existing businesses, or generating and implementing new ideas in any role that they hold during their careers. This minor is also well suited for undergraduate students interested in careers in consulting, new product development, technology commercialization, product management, event management, strategy, and business development.
