Minor in Innovation and Entrepreneurship
Enhance Your Major
ODU's minor in Innovation and Entrepreneurship provides students the tools and insights necessary to launch a new venture, whether it is for-profit or not-for-profit. Turning a passion, cause or idea into a functioning enterprise requires acumen in marketing, finance, law and management.
The minor in Innovation and Entrepreneurship will complement any major and is designed for both non-business and business majors.
While this minor is designed to accommodate students who are naturally creative, innovative or who plan to start and run their own enterprise, it will also be helpful to students who plan to work for an organization with an entrepreneurial mindset. In our current evolving and volatile economy, jobs no longer last decades.
Additionally, given the rapidly changing nature of our economy, employers are increasingly interested in hiring employees with an entrepreneurial or innovative mindset. This minor is ideally aligned to help students acquire that way of thinking and working.
