Entrepreneurship Minor

Bryan Pape

A minor in Entrepreneurship gives you the tools you’ll need to move ahead ― and avoid the pitfalls that can rob well-meaning business ventures of the kind of profits they need to succeed. Consider a minor in Entrepreneurship if you’re not a Business or Accounting major, and you’re interested in business planning and have the desire to run a successful business.


An Entrepreneurship minor from SPU’s School of Business, Government, and Economics prepares you for the tough decisions every entrepreneur is sure to face. You’ll receive a solid foundation in all the basics of independent businesses, and you’ll minimize the fear factor by learning in a university environment that promotes competence and integrity within the context of Christian faith and values. An Entrepreneurship minor at SPU is your first step to real-world success.
