McGill offers minor in entrepreneurship for non-business majors

September 6, 2016

Students from five non-business faculties at McGill will now be able to pursue minors in entrepreneurship, writes Jennifer Lewington for the Globe and Mail. The new minor will reportedly be available to students enrolled in arts, science, engineering, music, and agriculture and environmental sciences. It will provide students with business fundamentals such as accounting and marketing taught by professors from McGill’s Desautels Faculty of Management. “It is really a program that is long overdue,” says Simon Aldrich, an associate professor at McGill’s Schulich School of Music. “Of all disciplines, musicians need to be the most entrepreneurial yet ironically they come out the least entrepreneurial. They sit and wait for the phone to ring.” Globe and Mail
