Entrepreneurship, creativity and innovation, is one strategy for promoting economic growth in Jersey City and beyond.

A properly developed entrepreneurial idea creates jobs (not just for the entrepreneur, but for those she or he employs as well) and creates sustainable wealth for our communities.
Designed for both business and non-business majors, this interactive minor teaches students step-by-step how to creatively solve real-world problems, apply a business model to their solutions, and then assess the feasibility of their start up idea. In this minor, students will learn how to effectively market, manage, and finance a new venture, preparing them to be productive, self-sustaining members of our community, while aiding in the economic development of the region and nation.
