Entrepreneurship Minor

business meeting

SDSU's College of Business Administration is introducing the entrepreneurship minor which is available to all students on campus. The entrepreneurship minor consists of 15 credit hours for both business and non-business students.

The ideal time to start your minor program is the first or second semester of your junior year. The minor consists of one business prep course (waived for business majors), two required courses (MGT358 Fundamentals of Entrepreneurship and MGT460 Business Plan Development), and two or three elective courses (business students can take three while non-business students can take two). One distinctive feature of this minor is that students will be able to experience entrepreneurship through an "experiential component" of the program, such as business plan competitions or internships. The experiential component is administered by Lavin Entrepreneurship Center.
