This five-course (20 credit) Interdisciplinary minor guides students through the startup process. Students are exposed to innovation, marketing, and business modeling and given the opportunity to develop prototypes for their new ideas. They will then work in interdisciplinary teams to develop business plans. Support is provided to help students advance their ventures through IDEA, the venture incubator.

Depending on the participating college, one or two courses have been carefully selected as substitutes for D’Amore-McKim School of Business courses, allowing a student to apply the same course to both his or her own college degree and our entrepreneurship minor. We currently have partnerships with CAMD, COE, Khoury College of Computer Sciences, Bouvé, and COS. This allows students to learn entrepreneurship from business school professors while at the same time innovate and prototype new products and systems within their area’s faculty. This powerful combination leads to exciting new ventures.

This minor is available to nonbusiness students only.
