Entrepreneurship Minor Program Overview
Today, industries want graduates who can not only find a job, but create jobs for others.
Entrepreneurship is the most powerful economic force known to mankind (Kuratko and Hodgetts). The entrepreneurship revolution has captured our imagination and permeated every aspect of business thinking and planning. During the past decades, entrepreneurial dynasty builders such as Sam Walton of Wal-Mart, Fred Smith of FedEx, Bill Gates of Microsoft, Michael Dell of Dell Computers, and Herb Kelleher of Southwest Airlines demonstrated the applications of creativity, risk taking, innovation, and passion in a way that has led to economic development achievements far greater than anyone could imagine. The twenty-first century presents newer and more complex challenges than ever before; however, entrepreneurial drive and determination will provide our next decades with yet to be discovered dynasty builders.
The Trine Entrepreneurship Minor will provide students the theory, process, and practice for exploring the development of new and emerging ventures and present them in an exciting, organized, and challenging manner. It is neither an entrepreneurial engineering minor nor an entrepreneurial business minor, but instead an entrepreneurial minor where both engineering and business students, in fact all Trine students, can study, learn and experience both the science and art of entrepreneurship. The minor seeks to deliver a learning experience that embodies both the "science" and "art" of entrepreneurship.
