Entrepreneurship Minor (Business program majors)

Throughout the United States, many large enterprises began as small businesses initiated by an entrepreneur with an idea or vision. Still today, ninety-five percent of all businesses in the United States are small businesses. Entrepreneurship and small businesses are dynamic and powerful interactive forces in these increasingly difficult economic times.

The University of New Haven offers a minor in entrepreneurship as a means of preparing students who are considering a business start-up, purchasing an existing business, or joining the family business following graduation. The minor may also provide an “intrapreneurship” foundation for students who aspire to work in big business. As such, the minor pursues a multidisciplinary approach to entrepreneurship that integrates the business disciplines with communication, negotiation, and presentation skills. Moreover, the program merges theory into practice by linking emerging academic developments with the most effective business approaches.

Requirements for the minor in entrepreneurship, for business program majors only, are nine credits beyond the business program core.
