Entrepreneurship Minor

For information, contact the Page Center for Entrepreneurship, 2078 FSB, 513-529-1221.

Entrepreneurship and the ability to recognize opportunities to create viable, sustainable solutions are skills needed across all disciplines. The interdisciplinary minor exposes students to the mindset and behavior of successful entrepreneurs as well as the principles and concepts associated with entrepreneurship in startup, social, creative, and corporate ventures. The program complements majors in all of Miami’s academic divisions and promotes the applications of entrepreneurial concepts in support of each student’s passion, regardless of major. Entrepreneurship courses are for those interested in building a new business, adding value to an existing organization, or learning the skills necessary in the entrepreneurial workforce. Students complete the minor by taking courses as a core curriculum followed by one of four specific tracks: startup, social, corporate and creativity. The minor will provide a framework for understanding entrepreneurship from a variety of disciplines and application of entrepreneurial skill sets to meet societal and workplace demands.

The entrepreneurship minor is open to all university students and can be used to satisfy a Thematic Sequence by non-business majors.
