The Arts Entrepreneurship minor is an interdisciplinary minor that develops skills that can be applied to creating a new arts enterprise or opportunities for the individual artist. Students are exposed to the arts entrepreneurship mindset, which is a creative way of looking at opportunities, a passion, doing what one loves, a challenge, persistence and operating a business whether one owns it or not.
Enhance your arts or arts-adjacent degree by developing an entrepreneurial mindset and professional practice skills designed to give you agency to create your own opportunities!
The Arts Entrepreneurship Minor is open to all undergraduate students and offers an interdisciplinary curriculum from the College of the Arts and the Ambassador Crawford College of Business and Entrepreneurship. It was updated in early 2023 to enhance the multi-disciplinary arts ecosystem at Kent State through the addition of new required and entrepreneurship elective courses, and a list of minor elective courses that will expand through collaboration with programs throughout the university. This will allow students to customize their studies with courses that complement their talents and goals so they can thrive as entrepreneurs in the arts or any creative industry.
