The Entrepreneurship Minor is a campus-wide program that was developed in 2012 by a University-wide task force. The task force set out to survey opportunities on the University of Michigan campus and offer recommendations for an integrated, campus-wide structure that would provide a cutting-edge entrepreneurship education for undergraduate students.

While the entrepreneurial ecosystem has changed since 2012, the commitment to a cutting-edge education has not and, in partnership with all U-M Schools and Colleges, the Entrepreneurship Minor offers coursework and connections across all of campus. For the past five years, the Entrepreneurship Minor  has been ranked in the Top 5 for Undergraduate Entrepreneurship Programs by Princeton Review. The minor strives to empower students to adopt the key traits of an entrepreneur, regardless of their future plans.

Currently, there are approximately 400 students declared in the minor from:

  • A. Alfred Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning
  • College of Engineering
  • College of Literature, Science and the Arts
  • Penny W. Stamps School of Art and Design
  • School of Education
  • School of Information
  • School of Kinesiology
  • School of Music, Theatre and Dance
  • School of Nursing
  • School of Public Health
  • Stephen M. Ross School of Business

The Entrepreneurship Minor relies on academic partnerships with all of the Schools and Colleges and the work of the student organizations and community partners. Across the entire undergraduate community, the minor offered more than 80 classes and served an excess of 4000 students in the last academic year.
