Lehigh’s undergraduate minor in entrepreneurship is designed to be accessible to students from all disciplines and emphasizes innovation, entrepreneurial thinking and creative processes, cross-functional integration, and hands-on experiential practice. The minor leverages the resources and support of the Baker Institute for Entrepreneurship, Creativity, and Innovation, as well as a broad array of related programs and infrastructure across the university. Not tied to any specific college, the minor is run by a team of faculty from across the university.
Students are encouraged to participate in all types of entrepreneurship, including business and technical entrepreneurship but also not-for-profit contexts aiming for social, cultural and environmental change. Throughout the multidisciplinary, team-based curriculum, students are encouraged to work either on their own entrepreneurial or nonprofit pursuits, projects related to Lehigh University intellectual property, or ideas brought in by outside entrepreneurs or change advocates.
Lehigh alumni with a minor in entrepreneurship run their own businesses and work in the highest levels of major corporations, small businesses, and everything in between.
