Doctoral Minor in Entrepreneurship
The Option A minor is available now to non-Business PhD students. Business School PhD students may NOT complete an Option A minor within the School of Business because the Graduate School considers the School of Business to be one department.

Non-Business PhD students will have the minor denoted “business” on their transcript.
