Electives may also be taken from other departments on campus if the content of the course is deemed to be sufficient in entrepreneurial and innovative content to justify it as an elective, given the student's major and career interests. Acceptability of electives will be determined by the Lawrence K. Johnson Chair in Entrepreneurship and approved by the Management Department Chair.
