The Entrepreneurship for Non-Business Majors minor brings an entrepreneurial perspective to students' major fields of study. Entrepreneurship is more than a set of tools and techniques for starting and growing a business. It is a mindset, a creative way of looking at opportunities, a passion, doing what one loves, a challenge, persistence and creating wealth and operating a business, whether one owns it or not.
Students in the minor are immersed in the entrepreneurial process through coursework, entrepreneurial projects and exposure to many entrepreneurs in the community. Students are prepared for the various aspects of starting a business, acquiring a business, corporate entrepreneurship or working for a small business.
Admission to a minor is open to students declared in a bachelor’s degree, the A.A.B. or A.A.S. degree or the A.T.S. degree (not Individualized Program major). Students declared only in the A.A. or A.S. degree or the A.T.S. degree in Individualized Program may not declare a minor. Students may not pursue a minor and a major in the same discipline.
To declare the Entrepreneurship for Non-Business Majors minor, students must have a minimum 2.000 overall Kent State University GPA. No Kent State University GPA is required if the student is a first-semester freshman or transfer student admitted in good standing.
Only students declared in a major outside the College of Business Administration may declare the minor.
