Minor in Entrepreneurship

The minor in Entrepreneurship is offered to all UVI students regardless of their degree program. The program is designed to supplement any other degree with a focus on the fundamental skills of entrepreneurship covered in six courses or eighteen total hours. Entrepreneurship education will prepare the student with the tools and experiences necessary to explore the role of new venture creation and growth within their primary discipline. The minor is equally accessible to non-business students through the creation of a set of four, one credit hour, online concept courses that provide maximum flexibility to any UVI student wishing to pursue the minor. Business students must complete a subset of the business core which is already required for their program prior to enrolling in the minor. All requirements for the minor can be completed on either campus.
