You can launch your career in either a startup or corporation with a minor in entrepreneurship from the Mike Cottrell College of Business at the University of North Georgia (UNG). The minor in entrepreneurship is available to all majors including UNG students who are already majoring in a business-related field.
To receive a minor in entrepreneurship, students must complete 15 semester hours from the following required and selective courses:
- ENTR 3020 - Entrepreneurial Mindset and Process
- ENTR 3040 - Entrepreneurial Finance
- MGMT 4667 - Small Business Management
Students must also select two of the following selective courses:
- BUSA 4903 - Business Internship focused in entrepreneurship
- BUSA 3999 - Special Topics in Business (for example Creativity, International, or Corporate Entrepreneurship)
- MGMT 3699 - Special Topics in Management (for example Venture Management, Managing the Family Business, Global Supply Chain Management, or Project Management)
- MKTG 3799 - Special Topics in Marketing (for example Digital Marketing & Analytics, Sales & Distribution, or Franchise Management)
- CSCI 3900 - Selected Topics in Computer Science (for example New Technology Ventures, App Development, Technology Transfer, etc.)
- ENTR 4021 - Social Entrepreneurship
Exception: Management majors are required to take MGMT 4667 in their major and therefore will only complete the required ENTR 3020 and ENTR 3040. Management majors must then also complete three selective courses instead of two to accommodate the 15 semester hours needed.
