Entrepreneurship Minor Q&A on Monday, March 9

Entrepreneurship Minor

The Anderson Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation will host a question and answer session on the recently approved Interdisciplinary Minor in Entrepreneurship from 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. on Monday, March 9 in room 213 of John C. Hodges Library. Members of the Anderson Center staff will be on hand to explain the requirements of the minor and answer any questions students, faculty or staff have about specific courses.  This is a drop-in type event, and pizza and drinks will be provided for attendees.

The Interdisciplinary Minor in Entrepreneurship is a new minor available to UT Knoxville and UT Institute of Agriculture students from all academic programs and fields of study beginning this fall.  The entrepreneurship minor will require students to take 15 credit hours, selecting from entrepreneurship courses taught by faculty across six different colleges. Colleges offering courses toward the minor are the Haslam College of Business, the College of Architecture and Design, the College of Engineering, the College of Education, Health and Human Sciences, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources.

Teknovation.biz: UT Starting Interdisciplinary Entrepreneurship Minor for Undergraduates

There’s another building block that has been added to the entrepreneurial ecosystem in the Knoxville/Oak Ridge region.

Starting this fall, undergraduate students at the University of Tennessee can earn a minor in entrepreneurship regardless of the college in which they are enrolled.

The interdisciplinary opportunity comes as the result of strong collaboration among six colleges with each contributing courses to the mix of required classes and electives.

“When we first started this journey, we asked each college to bring what you have to the table,” said Lynn Youngs, Executive Director of the Anderson Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation in the Haslam College of Business.

Youngs stressed that, while the Anderson Center took the lead in coordinating the activities, the program that resulted would not have been possible without commitment and cooperation across the university. He first mentioned the idea in a teknovation.biz article in August 2013. Final approval came February 2 from the Faculty Senate.
