Our Entrepreneurship minor is designed to meet the needs of all Drake students who have been bitten by that entrepreneurial, I-want-to-put-my-mark-on-the-world bug! The minor is designed to take you through the process of starting and running your own business. You will gain skills from a combination of classroom instruction (there are three entrepreneurship courses you will need to take, plus an additional course in marketing), and hands-on learning. The hands-on learning component of our Entrepreneurship program involves opportunities to pitch your own business ideas to venture capitalists, to obtain a mentor who would provide personal guidance and help nurture your entrepreneurial project, to participate in internships with our very own Center for Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Human-Centered Design, and more. This minor is essential for any student who wishes to turn their undergraduate education into a business -- a psychology student who wishes to start their own counseling practice; a kinesiology student who wishes to open their own gym; a finance student who wishes to create a personal finance consultancy. Additionally, because students learn how to obtain seed money, how to run finances, how to market and fundraise, and more, the Entrepreneurship minor is useful to students who wish to start their own non-profit organization. Be an entrepreneur, make a difference, and let our Entrepreneurship minor help you get there!
This minor is available to all Drake students.
