Why Entrepreneurship?

“When looking at what minors were offered, entrepreneurship caught my attention. I loved how there’s a variety of courses to choose from, and each one seemed very interesting to me. From marketing, management, and communication I knew that each course would provide me with helpful life skills along with, important skills in the workforce. I would love to work for a nonprofit organization, and hopefully open my own one someday! I noticed that this minor offered a course specifically for managing a nonprofit organization, and I knew immediately that this was the perfect minor for me!”
