The Entrepreneurship Minor teaches you to recognize business opportunities, equips you with skills to secure funding, and provides insight on how to manage the commercialization of the business opportunity. Fundamental business classes are combined with those designed to specifically address the challenges of launching a new venture or an idea within an existing organization. With an innovative curriculum taught by dedicated professors, the Entrepreneurship minor provides a fundamental stepping-stone on the road to identifying and commercializing business opportunities in any type of organization.

Successful completion of the Entrepreneurship Minor requires that each course must be completed with a C- or better. In addition, the overall COB GPA in Minor (OSU TAKEN CLASSES) must be 2.5 or higher, and at least 50% of the overall minor credits must be from OSU.
