The Entrepreneurship Program at SDSU enhances entrepreneurial talents by fostering individual and/or organizational ideas by providing experiences and opportunities that create value in a commercial, social, artistic, and/or academic society.
Students majoring in any academic major will have the opportunity to increase their knowledge and the skills to think more creatively as well as start, own, and/or operate a business; become a community leader; transfer technology to a merchandisable product; and assist others in entrepreneurial efforts. In today’s competitive job market, a graduate who has the ability to “market” his/her skills effectively will be able to enter the job market with greater confidence and expertise. In addition, the entrepreneurial spirit is alive in South Dakota and in the global community that graduates must now enter in order to find a job or start a business of their own. This minor is designed to give all students the opportunity to earn a better living and to contribute to society via their chosen field (major) by becoming entrepreneurs.
In addition to the minor in Entrepreneurial Studies, the Entrepreneurship Program offers a unique set of one-credit modules that specialize in different areas of entrepreneurship. A student that collects ten of the twelve courses offered will obtain a Certificate in Entrepreneurship. A tentative course schedule can be found on the http://entr.sdstate.edu website.
Requirements for Entrepreneurial Studies Minor: 19-22 cr
