The Minor

About the Minor


Any undergraduate student at MSU can earn a minor in entrepreneurship and innovation regardless of their major or which college they’re enrolled in. See the official page about the Minor from the MSU Office of the Registrar.

If you have questions about the Minor, please talk to your college advisor or make an appointment with Desireé Melfi Bozzo.


15 credit-hours + 2 high-impact experiences

At least six of the 15 credits must be unique to the Minor. That is, they cannot be used to fulfill another university, college, or major requirement.

Two required core courses @ 3 hours each

ESHP 190: The Art of Starting (formerly BUS 190)

CAS 114 (or AL 114–it’s the same course): Creativity and Entrepreneurship.

Two High-Impact Experiences: Students are also required to complete two entrepreneurial and innovation experiences to earn the Minor, however anyone can choose to do an Experience regardless of whether they are enrolled in the Minor.

Students who complete an Experience will have the following designation put on their transcript next to the course name: ENTREP & INNOVATION OPTION
