Entrepreneurship Co-Major

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 Entrepreneurship Co-Major 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 every workforce. The Co-Major provides a framework for understanding entrepreneurship from a variety of disciplines and application of entrepreneurial skill sets to meet societal and workplace demands. 

The Entrepreneurship Co-Major does not fulfill the Thematic Sequence requirement for business majors. The Entrepreneurship Co-Major requires an application for admission; a limited number of students will be admitted each year. The term "co-major" is unique and indicates that students must complete a primary major in any academic division at Miami University.
