Entrepreneurship Minor

Define your own path.

Our entrepreneurship classes are designed to provide you with the foundational leadership and venture-vetting skills of highly successful entrepreneurs—whether your goal is to start a new business, advance in your current company or join a fast-paced startup.

Throughout the program, we will teach you to think like a founder or C-level executive as you learn how to identify socially innovative opportunities, prepare business plans and deal with legal issues. And our close connections in the San Diego business community provide you with ample opportunity to network with industry leaders both inside and outside of the classroom.
