Entrepreneurship Minor

The Farley Center's undergraduate minor in entrepreneurship is open to students from all undergraduate schools at Northwestern. It is designed to give students the practical tools, education, and mindset needed to start a business, grow a venture, or make innovation a part of their chosen career path. 

The minor requires 8 courses, including 5 core courses and 3 electives. No more than 4 courses may be double counted between a student's major program and the minor. Students with a primary major outside of McCormick may also be subject to the double counting rules of their home schools. Courses with a grade lower than “C-” cannot be applied to the minor. To declare the Entrepreneurship minor, students should submit the minor declaration form in MAS (McCormick Advising System) by the end of their junior year.

Please also note that many of our graduate level courses are open to undergraduate students. Refer to the Farley Center website for a complete listing of all courses and the most up-to-date information on the minor program. 

Core courses:


  • Any Farley Center course
