For Non-Rutgers Business School students
Non-RBS students pursuing the entrepreneurship minor will take all 6 courses (18 credits). The suggested course track for this minor will be to first take the Preliminary Core Requirements designed to provide students with general business skills (9 credits), then take the Entrepreneurship Core courses (6 Credits), and finally select an elective (3 credits).
The entrepreneurship minor course sequence is structured such that students acquire basic business knowledge and skills before taking more advanced courses.
Introduction to Entrepreneurship (33:382:302) offers students a framework for understanding the entrepreneurial process, and exposes students to challenges, problems, and issues faced by entrepreneurs who start new businesses.
Managing Growing Ventures (33:382:303) then offers an overview of running a small business, including discussions of leadership, strategy, marketing, finance, operations, human resources, supplier management, facilities, banking, legal, and regulatory considerations. This range of business aspects, and the range of entrepreneurship courses offered, are directly applicable to starting a small business or joining a large corporation. Many companies are explicitly setting expectations for, and placing value on, employees with entrepreneurial skills.
Within the minor, students receive a combination of theoretical and practical exposure to entrepreneurship. Case study is the principal teaching method, supplemented by lectures, project work, and guest speakers.
- Identify and evaluate business opportunities
- Develop a business concept
- Assess and obtain required resources
- Manage the growth of new ventures
- Effectively manage a small business
- Avoid common entrepreneurial mistakes
A Minor in Entrepreneurship augments all disciplines and expands career options and professional development. Virtually any position can utilize the learning goals.
Be informed that students may not double minor in Business Administration and Entrepreneurship.
