Entrepreneurship Minor


The Minor in Entrepreneurship in the Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics is for non-business majors. The minor provides non-business students with concepts, tools and techniques to become creative thinkers, conceptualize and articulate problem statements, construct innovative solutions, and explore and seek opportunities. The focus of the minor is not about creating startups, although this may be an ancillary outcome, rather on entrepreneurial thinking that make the students engage in successful careers in their respective disciplines.   

The minor consists of three required courses offered by Paul and two courses from a selective list offered by the other UNH Colleges. The three Paul courses are designed to follow a proscribed sequence that take the student through the entrepreneurial process.
