The Minor in Entrepreneurship programme (MiE) is designed to equip students with fundamental entrepreneurship competency, business acumen and stamina to build and grow businesses. Students will be enriched with an open mindset to bring innovative ideas into actualization and to inspire students to be venturesome and more resilient in this ever changing world.
Described as a "transformational learning experience" by past graduates, this programme demonstrates how entrepreneurship is not solely about starting a new business - it is a mindset. The lessons are conducted by business leaders, entrepreneurs, intellectual property lawyers and dedicated academics.
Students will learn to identify when and how to seize opportunities that come with change. Students will be placed in an interactive learning environment in the form of team-based projects, real life stimulations, role-playing and practical experiences. There will also be many networking and social settings for the students to meet professionals and successful entrepreneurs.
The Minor in Entrepreneurship constitutes a total of 16 Academic Units (UE), and takes about one academic year to complete. Students must pass all five modules in order to obtain the Minor in Entrepreneurship. The modules are not allowed to be read separately as individual electives.
Assessment is based on class exercises, case-studies analysis, group projects, presentations and reports. There is a heavy emphasis placed on class participation and attendance. ET9132 Entrepreneurial Accounting and Finance module consists of a formal examination.
Students who have completed the ET9121 Introduction to Entrepreneurship module will be exempted from ET9131 Entrepreneurship and Marketing for New Ventures module. Hence, will only be required to complete the other four modules to be eligible to file for the Minor in Entrepreneurship.
Do note that for ET9135 Business Venture Implementation, it will be conducted over a span of six months. There is a total of seven physical lessons and consultation sessions for the ET9135 module, to be conducted on two weekday evenings and five Saturdays. This module consists of two parts. In Part A, students are required to create and run a real business of their choice, while in Part B, students are to attend entrepreneurship-related events as part of their coursework requirements.

"Developing an enterprising mindset is one of the most crucial steps not only towards maximising our contributions to the society, but also towards self-actualisation. The Minor in Entrepreneurship programme has provided me with an opportunity to widen my horizon of thinking and creativity, and network with some of the best and brightest minds in today's industry. In addition, a channeled course of action towards realising these ideas is also necessary, which our instructors guided us on the implementation."
