NORTH ADAMS — The Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts recently approved a new minor in entrepreneurship within the Department of Business Administration and Economics. Although many of the classes required for this minor already are offered at the college, new courses have been added. The program officially begins this month.The entrepreneurship minor may be added to most — if not all — of the majors MCLA offers, according to Thomas Whalen, associate professor of business.The minor is closely tied to MCLA's design thinking curriculum. Design thinking, a new process for problem-solving that uses methods from traditional science and the humanities, will be part of the new "Principles of Entrepreneurship" course, according to Zachary Feury, project coordinator of the Feigenbaum Leads Initiative at MCLA.
