Minor in Innovation and Entrepreneurship

The Mendoza College of Business and the IDEA Center have teamed up to offer a brand new Interdisciplinary Minor in Innovation and Entrepreneurship. Housed in one of the top ranked undergraduate business schools in the country, the minor will be open to non-Mendoza students (as well as Mendoza students) from any undergraduate discipline major or college at Notre Dame. Come be a part of this multidisciplinary collaboration—and join diverse student teams to create startups that will truly make an impact!

The minor is open to all students from all disciplines. You are not required to have an idea for a business; just a curiosity about entrepreneurship and a willingness to jump in feet first!
