Paul H. Slaugh, Jr. Entrepreneurship Minor

Degree: Minor

A minor in Entrepreneurship allows students in any major to bring an entrepreneurial perspective to their specific area of study.

Why Study This Program?

Millersville University’s interdisciplinary minor in Entrepreneurship is the only truly minor of its kind in the entire PASSHE system. The goal of the Paul H. Slaugh, Jr. Entrepreneurial Minor is to learn to think entrepreneurially, identify resources and tools, formulate business plans, and devise clear and compelling value propositions as well as ethical practices. As a dynamic interdisciplinary program, this minor serves to complement the student’s major area of study by providing the knowledge and skills needed so that students can create or start their own ventures, work for start-up companies, family businesses or pursue traditional jobs that may involve launching new business units or joint ventures. 

What Will You Learn?

Students will learn to identify resources and tools to translate opportunities into sustainable solutions, formulate business plans and develop ethical orientations to build informed decisions, strategies and relationships. The Entrepreneurship minor will require students to complete a minimum of 18 credits, which includes an introductory seminar on entrepreneurial thinking, two core courses, a practicum and a capstone course on business skills for entrepreneurs.
