Academic Programs

Everyone can benefit from an education in entrepreneurship. NUM’s entrepreneurship academic programs are based in the College of Business and Economics, but are open to students in all colleges.

  • NUM’s Business Admin Major: Entrepreneurship focuses on useful, real-world topics to help students develop the skills needed for launching a start-up or bringing innovation to an existing company.
  • The Entrepreneurship Minor develops the entrepreneurial potential of any NUM student who wants to be their own boss or explore their own business ideas.
  • The entrepreneurship certificate is a stackable credential, which means students who complete the certificate can continue to take courses and earn a minor in entrepreneurship.
