San Diego State University will begin offering a minor in entrepreneurship starting in the fall of 2013, the school announced Thursday.
The entrepreneurship minor will be available to all undergraduate students regardless of their major area of study.
SDSU’s College of Business Administration joins a select group of business schools across the country that offer an interdisciplinary entrepreneurship minor, including the University of Pennsylvania (Wharton), University of Southern California (Marshall), University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Kenan-Flagler) and the Rutgers Business School.
The entrepreneurship minor was championed by Alex DeNoble, director of SDSU’s Lavin Entrepreneurship Center, and SDSU management professor and entrepreneurship expert, Congcong Zheng.
“Through the resources of the College of Business and the Lavin Entrepreneurship Center, we are focused on preparing the next generation of entrepreneurs,” DeNoble said. “This new entrepreneurship minor is a significant milestone in our quest to build a world-class program for entrepreneurs here at SDSU.”
