The Entrepreneurship & Management (E&M) program offers Johns Hopkins Arts & Sciences, Engineering, and Peabody students a broad array of courses designed to equip them to lead in business, professional, and academic arenas. Some students simply take a course or two. Many choose to fulfill the seven-course E&M minor, pairing it with their engineering, liberal arts, or public health major. The minor’s three core courses, Introduction to Business, Financial Accounting, and a communications course (either Professional Writing and Communication or Oral Presentations), provide a strong foundation in the fundamentals of entrepreneurial enterprises. Students then complete the required work in statistics, two upper-level courses, and a 400-level capstone course to fulfill the minor.
The minor in entrepreneurship and management focuses on business and management from a multidisciplinary viewpoint, with a quantitative emphasis. The program, part of the Center for Leadership Education, offers students a diversified learning experience that emphasizes the concepts, practices, and skills necessary for effective leadership as managers and entrepreneurs in the public and private sectors.
The primary goal of the program is to provide Hopkins students with the knowledge and skills to become effective leaders and entrepreneurs. Individuals with excellent technical training and abilities often move into management positions or start new ventures. As their careers progress, they will be better prepared for success if they have the ability to understand financial reports, interpret statistical data, organize and effectively lead a team, design strategy, analyze and correct problems in the firm's operations, and understand the dynamics of the marketplace.Thus, the program will help prepare students for entrance to law school, an MBA program, or graduate school; moving more quickly into management positions; starting new ventures; or pursuing careers in finance and business.
The CLE Full-time Faculty and staff offices are located in Whitehead Hall, suites 102, 104 and 105. Course assistants’ office hours are held in Whitehead Hall room 104.
