Minor in Entrepreneurship

A Top-Ranked Program

John Carroll University’s entrepreneurship program is ranked in the top 25 best undergraduate programs in the nation by U.S. News and World Report.

The program is grounded in the University’s values-based Jesuit education, which emphasizes critical thinking, ethical, global issues, reflection, and service to others.

While academic programs in entrepreneurship were once exclusively business-focused, John Carroll looks at entrepreneurship as a way of thinking and developing an entrepreneurial mindset, with a focus on teaching students to recognize opportunities in both for-profit and non-profit organizations.

The entrepreneurship minor is designed to support all majors. Currently, half of the students in the minor are in the College of Arts and Sciences and the other half are in the Boler College of Business.
