Students interested in entering the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries will also greatly benefit from a minor in entrepreneurship. In an increasingly complex global society, the ability to think “outside the box” and to integrate concepts, knowledge, and skills from the subject of biochemistry is invaluable as students prepare to thrive in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries. Students are taught to infuse scientific concepts and research experience with entrepreneurial thinking as part of the program. Students also learn the importance of networking and how science is best served through an interdisciplinary approach.
The entrepreneurship minor will enable any interested student to create an entrepreneurial focus to complement and enhance the biochemistry major. The 20-22 credit minor consists of:
|ENTR 20510||ENTR MIND/CREAT&INNOVATION:CM||4|
|ENTR 30600||THE ENTREPRENEURIAL PROCESS||4|
|ENTR 32100||INTEGRATIVE ENTREPRENEURSHIP||3|
|Select two elective courses 1||6-8|
Chosen in consultation with a faculty advisor, and an experiential learning requirement, which can be integrated with the capstone experience described under the biochemistry major.
