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.

Why I Teach at SPU

John Godek, Assistant Professor of Management

"Helping people learn, both young and old, seems to have been my calling for as long as I can remember. University teaching in particular has been a natural fit with my own intellectual curiosity, and I especially enjoy the challenge of engaging with bright students and helping them to connect the theoretical aspects of what they learn in the classroom with practical applications for their future professions."
