Graduate Minor

Interested in pursuing our Graduate Minor in Entrepreneurship? Email us at farley@northwestern.edu to learn more.

The Graduate Minor in Entrepreneurship is open to master’s students in the McCormick School of Engineering, students in select master’s degree programs offered through The Graduate School (TGS), and students in the School of Communication’s MS in Leadership for Creative Enterprises (MSLCE) program.

Students interested in pursuing the graduate minor must recognize that the completion of the minor will require coursework beyond and in addition to the required courses for their primary degree program. As such, students in the minor program may need to extend their degree completion date by at least one quarter.

The graduate minor in entrepreneurship requires three total credits and must be declared at least one quarter before graduation (sooner is better). One credit of the three must be from either a NUvention course or an experiential course (more details below). Students may also apply up to one credit of graduate-level coursework related to entrepreneurship from another department or program on campus towards the three required credits, as long as they receive prior approval from Farley Center staff. It is also important to note that only one credit from minor coursework can be double-counted towards another degree plan. The other two must be taken in excess of other coursework required by the student’s degree plan.
