Earlier this year, an entrepreneurial education was made available to all U-M students. The new 15-credit minor in entrepreneurship aims to attract students from diverse areas of study.
The minor expands on the nine-credit program in entrepreneurship currently offered and adds to the growing number of entrepreneurship programs and activities available for U-M students, including entrepreneurship centers, startup accelerators, countless competitions and more than 18 entrepreneurial student groups. Two hundred students are expected to enroll once the minor is launched.
“We believe all students have the capacity to be innovators. This campus-wide minor provides them with the knowledge, skills and motivation to build the skills attributed to entrepreneurial behavior and innovative thinking necessary to succeed,” said Thomas Zurbuchen, senior counselor for entrepreneurship education and head of Innovate Blue.
