John Cabot University: the Academic Experience

Minor in Entrepreneurship for Communications Majors

A major in Communications provides students with a highly transversal tool set that is becoming increasingly indispensable in a crowded world in which organizations struggle to make their voice heard. This is particularly true in the startup arena, where such skills are in high demand.

A Minor in Entrepreneurship would be particularly helpful not only for students who may have their own idea to develop but also for those who may see themselves working in a business setting. This 6-course program is uniquely tailored to the specific needs of students, who discuss their ambitions with the Director of the Institute prior to selecting the optimal courses. Thus, a student wishing to specialize in visual communications, for instance, might take COM 111 Introduction to Visual Communications and COM 230 Foundations of Visual Communications as part of the six courses.

1. BUS 305 Introduction to Entrepreneurship
