The mission of Integrated Entrepreneurship is to foster an expansive sense of the possible, an exploration of personal passion, an ownership of one's ideas and actions and a commitment to add value to one's self and community.
At Hiram College, entrepreneurship is more than organizing and starting a business. It is a way of thinking. The skills and character fostered by the liberal arts are an excellent foundation for successful entrepreneurs, who use their passion to create valued products, services and programs. The synergy of the liberal arts and entrepreneurship helps students develop the knowledge, skills and mindset necessary to enhance their own lives, and those of their communities and society, no matter their areas of study or chosen career paths.
The entrepreneurship minor consists of three required courses, two electives, chosen in consultation with a faculty adviser, and a senior project. The flexibility of the electives and the experiential learning component means students can develop a minor that complements any major at Hiram College.
