Complete your minor in entrepreneurship in one semester while participating in an internship in an innovative organization. This remote program combines virtual communities of UNC students taking remote classes while sharing their experiences in entrepreneurial internships in a variety of ecosystems.

Students will explore startup communities and ecosystems around the United States and in London, focusing on Leading, Emerging, and Developing communities including the Bay Area, New York, Los Angeles, and Austin. The Shuford Honors Semester on Entrepreneurship allows students to live and work in cities of their choice while taking remote classes together.

Courses offered in this program represent the core of the Minor in Entrepreneurship. The seminar is open to students with a 3.0 GPA who have completed or are enrolled in the minor’s mandatory gateway course, ECON 125 (Introduction to Entrepreneurship), or with instructor permission.
