At Point Park, entrepreneurship is offered as both a minor and area of concentration for business management majors. A minor or concentration in entrepreneurship gives a student who wishes to pursue his or her own business or work for a smaller entrepreneurial venture the opportunity to gain some background and knowledge of the particularly unique issues related to these types of businesses. The minor in entrepreneurship also gives students in other disciplines who are interested in starting their own business or working for a smaller entrepreneurial venture the same opportunity to gain this type of background.
