“Ever since I have come to NMU, my life has been on a roller coaster of tribulations and successes. At times I didn’t know if I’d be able to continue my educational career, but NMU has welcomed me with open arms and allowed me to grow in times of distress. I have made an innumerable amount of life-long connections here that I know I wouldn’t have found anywhere else.”

Program Minor

Do you have a passion for art, music, sports? Do you have a passion for designing things or building things? Do you already know what you want to do but don't know how to make a living doing it? Our entrepreneurship minor will allow you to take your passion and apply an entrepreneurial skill set to it in order to increase your likelihood of success in starting your own business.

Students in the arts with dreams of opening their own galleries; students in construction management with hopes of starting their own company; and students studying athletic training with the goal of opening their own consulting company have all found the minor in entrepreneurship helpful in preparing them for working for other people, as well as starting their own businesses.
