Why a Minor in Entrepreneurship at NDU?
The growing number of established business incubators around the country in the past
few years is one of many explicit indicators of an identified increasing entrepreneurship
trend in the Lebanese market. This emerging trend is accompanied by an increasing need
for technical, practical, and academic support to be provided to young entrepreneurs.
Thus, NDU is seizing this opportunity by offering a Minor in Entrepreneurship to students
who are pursuing their studies in different majors and have the intention and the
aspiration to start their own business. Students coming from any major are potential
candidates for this minor: civil engineering, mechanical engineering, computer science,
architecture, nutrition, education, graphic design, fashion design, or even nursing (if they
have a business idea in mind such as starting a home nursing agency for example), just to
It is important to note that if NDU decides to start this minor, it will be the first and
currently the only higher education institution offering this minor. This minor is not
currently offered by any university in Lebanon.
