The minor has been tailored to non-business majors and is open to all Towson University students except those majoring in accounting, business administration, business systems and processes. Students with a business major interested in entrepreneurship can select a concentration in entrepreneurship.
All requirements for the entrepreneurship minor must be completed with a grade equivalent of 2.00 or higher and a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher. Students are allowed a maximum of two attempts for all courses. Students electing the entrepreneurship minor are not formally admitted to nor graduate from the College of Business and Economics. See the entrepreneurship minor requirements in the University Catalog.
A minor course of study allows you to complement your major with a broader body of knowledge. You can pursue your personal passion and academic interests while still fulfilling the requirements of your major discipline. Enhance your resume and transcript and make yourself a more marketable job candidate by building your knowledge base and broadening your educational experience.
