Upon completion of the minor, students will be able to: (a) recognize entrepreneurial opportunities; (b) assess the risk and reward associated with each opportunity; (c) create the appropriate plans to pursue the opportunity; and (d) appreciate the role entrepreneurial thinking and behavior plays in their personal and professional lives, and in society at-large.
