Entrepreneurship Minor

As much a mindset as it is a business practice, entrepreneurship falls somewhere on the spectrum from career success to leadership. Entrepreneurial inclinations influence artistic, educational, professional, and personal decisions, even when no finances are involved. It’s a type of problem solving. Entrepreneurship equals creativity and pro-activity.
