The Minor in Entrepreneurship is designed for students pursuing a non-business degree program who have aspirations of launching their own business or an enterprise within an organization.

Hands-on learning is emphasized and you’ll have the opportunity to design and create your own business.

In this program, you’ll gain an understanding of the entrepreneurial process as well as develop the critical skills and expertise required for careers in entrepreneurship and small business management.

The practicum courses integrate students in the Minor in Entrepreneurship with students in the BCom Entrepreneurship concentration, allowing you to collaborate with students from other academic programs.

In addition to courses related to entrepreneurship and small business management, you will also take introductory courses in accounting, marketing and organizational behaviour.
