The minor in Innovation & Entrepreneurship is offered by the Tepper School of Business as part of the Integrative Design, Arts and Technology (IDeATe) network. IDeATe offers students the opportunity to become immersed in a collaborative community of faculty and peers who share expertise, experience, and passions at the intersection of arts and technology. Students will engage in active "learning by doing" in state-of-the-art maker spaces. The program addresses current and emerging real-world challenges that require disciplinary expertise coupled with multidisciplinary perspectives and collaborative integrative approaches.
The new minor in Innovation and Entrepreneurship is a cross-university initiative that brings together STEM disciplines with arts, humanities and business.
In this minor, you will work collaboratively in hands-on explorations of the complete 21st century innovation ecosystem. You will experience integrated models of innovation that increase the likelihood of home-run products and services that will captivate society and/or the marketplace. Your contributions can fulfill deep-felt needs or connect culture and lifestyle in a way that galvanizes users and customers. Leveraging the diverse maker culture of Carnegie Mellon, this minor involves collaborative rapid prototyping and iteration.
You will declare the minor through the Tepper School of Business and will work the faculty contacts, Dave Mawhinney (firstname.lastname@example.org), Lenore Blum, Jon Cagan, Peter Boatwright, and Eric Anderson and the IDeATe advisor, Kelly Delaney (email@example.com), to complete the curriculum below.
You may be able to double-count up to two of the minor courses for other requirements for your major. Please consult with your home academic advisor for double-counting policies for your college/major.
Faculty members from across the university collaborate to develop and instruct courses that are collaborative in nature and support diverse areas of student expertise.
