Entrepreneurship Minor

Why minor in entrepreneurship while you are at UAA? This six-class (18 credits) program allows students from any major to earn college credit while simultaneously developing and launching a business…or while continuing to work on an existing business that you have already started. Even if you’re not yet sure if leading your own business is your thing, the minor will develop your skills when and if you need to or want to tap into these skills in the future.

You live in a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world. Would you rather go forward with entrepreneurship skills or without them?
Contact your advisor or Dr. Rick Wolk when you are ready to get started.
