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. An emerging trend accompanied by an increasing need for technical, practical and academic support to be provided to young entrepreneurs. Thus, NDU should consider seizing this opportunity and offer 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 absolutely any major are potential candidate for this proposed 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 name few.
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 in any university in Lebanon.
