Download printer-friendly PDF

The undergraduate minor is built upon three pillars: management of entrepreneurial enterprises, development of creativity, and opportunity for innovative action. The minor consists of 16 credit hours. Students must complete coursework in management, creativity, and innovation, as well as in a workshop series that represents a common learning experience for all Mizzou entrepreneurship minors. Three hours of coursework are required in each pillar and a one-hour experiential seminar course. Students must select the final three hours to complete the minor from approved courses in one of the pillars. HES students can double-count coursework to facilitate meeting the minor requirement.
