Michigan entrepreneurial programs engage students in the classroom and beyond. We offer a wealth of opportunities designed to give students the skills and experiences needed to be effective leaders with the confidence to innovate, be entrepreneurial, and re-invent themselves. The Entrepreneurship Minor is open to all undergraduate students – no application is required. Students who wish to pursue the minor should schedule an advising appointment.

Students interested in the Entrepreneurship Minor should meet with an Entrepreneurship Minor Peer Advisor to discuss minor requirements and gain valuable student perspectives and advice.  Students can schedule advising appointments with Entrepreneurship Minor Peer Advisors during the Fall and Winter terms.

For more information and/or to declare the Entrepreneurship Minor, students may schedule an advising appointment online to meet with an Entrepreneurship Minor staff advisor.  Appointments may be scheduled about three weeks in advance and new appointments will continue to be made available throughout the semester.  Students may also email EntrepreneurshipMinor@umich.edu for further information.  

Students pursuing the Entrepreneurship Minor will need to request a minor release prior to graduation.  Students do not need to schedule an appointment for a minor release.  Minor release requests can be submitted via email to EntrepreneurshipMinor@umich.edu.  In the email, students should submit their plan for completion of the minor (if not already complete) and indicate any credit that is overlapping between the student’s major and minor.

Students may submit a petition to request that a class they are currently taking, or have taken in the past, be counted toward Entrepreneurship Minor requirements.  Students will be asked to include the syllabus for the course they are petitioning, and should also be able to explain how the course meets criteria for the Entrepreneurship Minor’s elective category or practicum category, as applicable (practicum petitions will not be reviewed unless the course has been completed). Students will also be asked to explain how the course relates to their individual pursuit of entrepreneurship.
