Minor in Entrepreneurship


The LIU Global Minor in Entrepreneurship equips students with the knowledge and skills necessary to imagine, plan and execute sustainable ventures through entrepreneurial design thinking that produces a social benefit. Through courses and integrated fieldwork around the world, students learn the ways in which entrepreneurs use business principles to channel market forces to address important social needs. Through projects or internships, students will explore how they can become positive change agents in their communities and professional lives.  Students can complete one or more minors at LIU Global.  Each minor requires the completion of a minimum of 15 credits from the approved courses. Courses listed below may only count toward one minor if cross-listed in another minor.

LIU Global students interested in pursuing a minor through an LIU Brooklyn or LIU Post department must contact the respective department directly to explore the feasibility of completing their requirements and accepting LIU Global equivalents if/where possible.
