The W.P. Carey Program in Entrepreneurship and Management (E&M) was created through a gift from the late businessman and philanthropist William Polk Carey, who believed that, “to be successful, students need educational training in leadership, management, finance, and international issues.”
Today, the E&M program educates Hopkins students in the fundamentals of enterprise and provides hands-on experience both innovating to solve real-world problems and translating and commercializing those innovations from the classroom to the real world.
The minor’s three core courses provide a strong foundation in the fundamentals of entrepreneurial enterprises. Students can then select any three upper-level courses, plus the required work in statistics, to complete the minor.*
*Please note that only students matriculating in 2020 or after are required to take a capstone course as one of their three upper-level electives. Please see the list below for acceptable capstone courses.

A: To complete the Entrepreneurship & Management minor, students must take courses from three categories: statistics, fundamentals of entrepreneurship and management, and upper level entrepreneurship and management electives.
