Students must earn at least 3 credits in residence in each minor field, as well as have a UAA cumulative GPA of at least 2.00 (C) in the minor. Students must follow minor requirements from the same catalog used for the baccalaureate program. These minors outlined below are the for the current catalog year. Students need to formally declare their minor no later than the deadline to submit an Application for Graduation.

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.
