m i
minor, in LSA

Curriculum unveiled
for winter 2015
builds on former
certificate program
By MICHAEL SUGERMAN
DailyStaffReporter
As extracurricular opportuni-
ties to grow business and encour-
age student entrepreneurship
continue to expand, so do in-class
offerings.
Starting with the Winter 2015
semester, the University will
offer an entrepreneurship minor
through LSA.
"Our students are known for
their interestin applyingtheir tal-
ents and creativity in response to
a need or problem," said Univer-
sity President Mark Schlissel in
a statement. "This program will
provide students with knowledge
they can use to further ignite their

imaginations and pursue creative
solutions to real world challeng-
es."
The minor falls under the
umbrella of innovate Blue, a
University program launched in
March that works with Universi-
ty, local and commercial partners
to spur entrepreneurial spirit in
the classroom and outside it.
The 15-credit minor is broken
down into four focus areas: core,
practicum, electives and self-
directed extracurricular experi-
ence. Innovate Blue will serve as a
center for declaring the minor and
advising. Two hundred students
are expected to declare when the
minor launches next year.
The core will consist of two
courses that were piloted this fall,
titled Entrepreneurial Business
Basics and Entrepreneurial Cre-
ativity. The former is run through
the Ross School of Business and a
lecturer in the Department of Psy-
chology teaches the latter.

"I think that it's just a lot of
time crunches all at oncelike a lot
of time management problems,"
said LSA junior Sarah Zaccardo.
"It's kind of like the last ofit all, so
anything that happens you can't
really change afterwards. It's like

In addition to all of the expect-
