Minor in Entrepreneurship for Fine Arts Students

The minor in Entrepreneurship for nonbusiness majors program assumes no previous knowledge of business. Fine Arts students are usually involved in starting and running their own business, developing and starting small performing groups, and developing and running nonprofit community theaters.

Students would develop the skills necessary to evaluate opportunities within their industry. They would learn, among other things, to

  1. Analyze their competition
  2. Develop marketing and financial plans
  3. Explain intellectual property rights
  4. Negotiate contracts
  5. Write a business plan that could be used to obtain financing from banks, investors, or other sources of funding

These skills are all central to the creation and development of new ventures. This is a joint effort of four departments and represents an 18-credit minor for Fine Arts majors. The program is designed to give nonbusiness majors a general background in starting and running a small business.
