The entrepreneurship programs at NDSU are experiential programs accessible to all NDSU students, regardless of major. Our entrepreneurship programs equip students with the skills to solve meaningful problems within their communities and careers. True to NDSU’s distinctive approach to learning, our entrepreneurship programs are designed to educate and empower. The programs are powered by the Center for Entrepreneurship and Family Business in the NDSU College of Business.

The program provides many pathways so that students are able to design a program experience specific to their interests and needs. Whether the goal be new business creation, taking over a family business, social entrepreneurship, international entrepreneurship, engineering, or a rewarding career within an existing business, the NDSU entrepreneurship program has a unique path for all of these interests.

The entrepreneurship certificate program is available for students to earn in either an on-campus or an online format. The entrepreneurship minor is available for students to earn only in an on-campus format.
