The Minor

About the Minor

DECLARE THIS MINOR Right Arrow Icon

Any undergraduate student at MSU can earn a minor in entrepreneurship and innovation regardless of their major or which college they’re enrolled in. When students declare, they will be asked to indicate whether they are pursuing the Minor in Entrepreneurship and Innovation (E&I) or the Minor in E&I: Social Innovation Track.

If you have questions about the Minor, please talk to your E-advisor or contact us.

Requirements

15 credit-hours, and at least six of them must be unique to the Minor. That is, they cannot be used to fulfill another university, college, or major requirement.

Two required core courses @ 3 hours each–BUS 190: The Art of Starting (i.e., Intro to Entrepreneurship); and CAS 114 (or AL 114–it’s the same course): Creativity and Entrepreneurship (see below for course descriptions and schedules).

It is recommended that students take the core courses in the minor first.

Nine elective credits selected from the list below.

Two Experiences: Students are also required to complete two entrepreneurial and innovation experiences to earn the Minor, however anyone can choose to do an Experience regardless of whether they are enrolled in the Minor.

Students who complete an Experience will have the following designation put on their transcript next to the course name:
